PROMISING Cherries striker Sam Surridge has signed a new contract at Vitality Stadium.

The talented 20-year-old's latest deal will see him remain with the Dorset club until at least the summer of 2021.

Surridge, who is currently on a season-long loan at League Two side Oldham Athletic, told Cherries' official website: "It's a nice feeling and I’m really pleased.

"I’ve been doing well out on loan and it’s almost like being rewarded for what I've been doing and it’s going well so far."

Surridge has played in 13 matches and scored nine goals for the Latics.

He was named League Two player of the month for September after scoring five goals in four games.

The marksman suffered an injury in October which put him out for more than a month.

"I scored quite a few goals in my first few months and I felt sharp and was really enjoying my football," said Surridge.

"Unfortunately I suffered an injury and didn’t play for five weeks, but I played my first 90 minutes in the FA Cup on Saturday.

"I need to get fit and over the injury, it’s okay having your leg feel okay but getting that sharpness back is key. But it’s been a good experience so far and I’m enjoying it.

"To be playing football at my age in the league is great, it will give me a lot of experience for when I come back and hopefully that will stand me in good stead to be around the first team.

"I’ve had a lot of good experiences out on loan so far and it’s almost been an upward curve. I want to keep playing and keep scoring and see what happens. I want to keep showing that I have earned the new deal."
