Dominic Solanke extends his contract with Bournemouth until 2027

Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke has committed his future to the club by signing a contract extension that will see him remain at the Vitality Stadium until 2027. 

The announcement comes on his 26th birthday, adding an extra layer of joy to the occasion, just days after Solanke became a father for the first time.

Solanke has been a mainstay in the first team since he arrived from Liverpool in January 2019. He has bagged 58 goals and 28 assists in 179 appearances for the club. 

Solanke’s previous contract extension followed his stellar 2021/22 season in the Championship, where he showcased his striking prowess by netting 29 times.

He was instrumental in Bournemouth’s return to the Premier League. 

Solanke continued to shine in the top flight, tallying six goals and seven assists and playing a pivotal role in Bournemouth’s Premier League survival.

The decision to extend Solanke’s contract by another year reflects the club’s determination to retain their star striker amid interest from West Ham United during the last transfer window. 

This new deal reaffirms Solanke’s commitment to the Cherries and underscores the club’s ambitions as they look forward to their Premier League campaign.

Chief Executive Neill Blake said (via Bournemouth’s official website): “We’re thrilled to have someone with such calibre as Dom commit his future to the club having already enjoyed many successful moments together.

“He’s a player and a person that we value extremely highly both on and off the pitch and we’re excited to continue working with him.

“I’m thoroughly looking forward to seeing what the next few years have in store and I’m sure together we can continue our success at the highest level of football.”
