Skysports.com understands Bournemouth are in talks with Harry Arter over a new deal at the club.
Arter, who joined from Woking in the summer of 2010, has established himself as key member of Lee Bradbury's side.
The 21-year-old has netted four goals in 12 appearances this season and his performances have not gone unnoticed elsewhere.
The Cherries are keen to reward Arter for his fine form with a new long-term deal to ward off potential suitors in his services.
Securing Arter on a new contract would provide the League One side with a massive boost having lost a number of their key players over the summer.
