Danny Hollands has committed his future to Bournemouth by agreeing a new two-year deal.
The 22-year-old former Chelsea man had been out of contract this summer, but has opted to remain at Dean Court.
Hollands did speak to other clubs interested in his services, although his first choice was always to stay with Bournemouth.
"I wanted to stay if I could anyway, there was never any doubt about it," the Middlesex-born star told the Daily Echo.
"I spoke to another couple of clubs but in the end nothing materialised. My first choice was always to stay.
"The fans are great and I had quite a few asking me to stay, which is nice.
"If the fans want you to stay it's really nice. It's good to have their support."
