Dan Gosling has reaffirmed hopes of playing out his career with Bournemouth.
Signed on a free transfer from Newcastle in 2014, the Brixham-born star has chalked up 166 appearances for the Dorset club.
He told Sky Sports: "It's a way of life that suits us. To bring up kids in a place like this, there's not too many better places.
"My little one's supposed to be starting school in September.
“We go on dog walks along the beach, and in the summer our family comes to stay and we have great days out, and they always say how lucky we are living here."
He added: “I've got huge respect for everyone at the club; the chairman, the chief exec, the coaching staff.
"All the people who work behind the scenes are all fantastic people, so I'm very settled here."
