The Cherries winger has become the first Premier League player to turn down a short-term contract extension after the season was extended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Great, can’t wait!!

I’d be much more excited with David Brooks coming to us. Not 23 yet. Just gets better and better. Injury prone now. Absolutely perfect for us...

I don't really like to see that, I would prefer he gave his all. but i can understand. if your head and heart is not there anymore, it's better to just walk away.

Makes sense to me, he's at a crucial point in his career, at 26 years old he's probably at or approaching his peak.

It isn't worth the risk of picking up a serious injury, being out of the game for some time and missing out on a move to a bigger club for the sake of a few weeks' loyalty.

The 4 Bournemouth players who have signed short term deals are all between 34 and 40 years old - totally different scenario for them.

I feel like Arsenal need him a lot more than we do and have more space for a pacey wide player in their squad. Think he'll end up there or somewhere like Wolves or Everton - I can't really see him ending up here.

Squad player, not at CL level should we pull off the miracle and qualify.

The team needs some new blood to drive it on a bit. With our limited budget then I think he makes sense. He might surprise us and rise to the occasion.

There needs to be a clear out of players who never quite make it to our first eleven.

damn that's low atleast try to help your team stay up before you ditch them... not much heart in him by the looks like it.

Best position ist Left Winger.

We have Sess, Son and Bergwijn for that with Dele, Lucas and Lamela also capable to play there. Rather pointless.

Yep, would feel like signing someone just to sign someone. We need a backup striker and thats all I think for the attack.

Rather agree, unless one or two of them are going perhaps (like Lucas & Lamela).

Even in that case why not sign someone who has his strengths on the right side?

Otherwise we should really focus on RB, CDM and Back up 9. Maybe a CB if the market offers something.

Bit off really. U less his move is already sorted, and he’s protecting his career.

Then Again, he might also be thinking I don’t need to expose myself and family to greater risk to the virus.

Pick up an injury miss the window, stuck in limbo until he recovers. No agent worth his salt would be advising him to sign a short deal at 26.
