CHERRIES plan to discuss the futures of experienced quartet Simon Francis, Artur Boruc, Andrew Surman and Charlie Daniels in the coming days.

The four players had been set to see their original contracts expire with Cherries on June 30 but extended their deals until the end of the Premier League campaign - which was prolonged due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Daily Echo understands those extended deals expired this week, meaning they are now technically free agents – but Cherries are set to discuss their respective futures.

Eddie Howe’s squad will be back in training on August 17, ahead of the start of the Championship season on the weekend of September 12.
