Ryan Fraser will leave Bournemouth upon the expiration of his current contract after opting not to sign a short-term deal until the end of the season.

The Premier League is set to resume play following its postponement on Wednesday, with nine full-card rounds remaining which are set to be played over the next five weeks.

However, several players within the league have their contracts run out at the end of June, meaning that they will need to sign new agreements to extend their stay until the completion of the campaign.

Fraser of Bournemouth is one of these players, and although he was expected to leave in the summer anyway, he has decided not to feature in the remaining games with the Cherries, and will leave the club before any of the fixtures taking place in July.

Who should Chelsea sign to address their left-back problem?

Simon Francis, Andrew Surman, Artur Boruc and Charlie Daniels are four players who have took up the option to sign short-term deals.

But the Scotland international had been one of Eddie Howe’s key players in the 2018/19 campaign, though was unable to replicate that form this season, with injuries hampering his ability to put together a run of form.

He has previously been strongly linked with a move to either Arsenal or Everton, but no negotiations are believed to have taken place recently.

Bournemouth restart their Premier League season on Saturday as they take on Crystal Palace in a match broadcast on the BBC for the first time in the club’s history.
