MARK Molesley is the latest Cherries star to pledge his future to the club as he bids to become a permanent fixture on the south coast.

The all-action midfielder, a big fans’ favourite following his first season at Dean Court, has revealed his intention to extend his current deal, which has a further season remaining.

With the club’s long-running takeover finally concluded last night, the news that another of Eddie Howe’s key players is keen to stay with Cherries comes as another timely boost.

Molesley’s desire to remain at Dean Court is backed up by the fact that he is planning to move his family home to Dorset.

The 28-year-old, who recently married his partner Charlene, wants to secure a long-term contract with Cherries as he looks to relocate from his current home in Rickmansworth.

“I really enjoyed last season and said I wanted to stay longer and wanted to commit my future to Bournemouth,” revealed the former non-league star.

“Hopefully something can be sorted out so I can commit my long-term future to the club. I’m relocating to Bournemouth so I would like to extend my stay. I’m moving down with my new wife and we’ve got a baby on the way.”

Molesley wasted no time in establishing himself in the Cherries first team after joining the club, initially on loan, from Conference outfit Grays Athletic in October. He went on to make 32 appearances and score four goals.

Shaun Cooper, Ryan Pryce, Ryan Garry, Josh McQuoid, Joe Partington and Jeff Goulding have all agreed new deals at the club this summer.
