AFC Bournemouth: Elliott Ward signs new contract

Bournemouth defender Elliott Ward has signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract with the Championship club.

The centre-half, 28, joined the Cherries from Norwich City in June 2013 on a one-year-deal and has since made 18 appearances.

"I've really enjoyed myself over these first six months," Ward told the club website.

"It's been good for both me and the club; we have worked well together so far."
