Brett Pitman has handed Bournemouth a major boost by pledging his future to the League Two club.

Pitman's impressive form for the Cherries this season has sparked rumours that he could be a target for a number of sides in the summer.

However, the 21-year-old forward has stated that he sees his future at Dean Court.

He said in the Daily Mirror: "I have a year left on my contract and I don't see myself playing anywhere else."

Pitman took his tally for the campaign to 17 after he netted a brace in Saturday's 4-0 victory at Morecambe.

He added: "We said we wanted to end the season on a high and I don't think you can get much higher than a 4-0 win away from home.

"I was pleased with my two goals but more importantly the performance was good overall. We changed the system a bit during the game and it worked well."
