Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter isn't giving up on his Dean Court career.
Arter was restricted to 13 appearances in the Premier League in 2017-18 – his last start coming during the 2-2 draw at Brighton on New Year's Day.
He told the Daily Echo: “Last season was very disappointing for me on the pitch.
“Naturally, I was really looking forward to it ending because I wanted to come back and prove I'm still the player I knew I was last season.
“I felt, potentially, I didn't get given the opportunity to get my form back like I had hoped but the team was performing well and players in my position took their chance. That is how football works."
Arter added: “I have worked so hard. As soon as the season finished, I was running and came back as fit as I think I ever have for Bournemouth.
“I'm sure that has been noted by the sports scientist staff and the manager. I'm just working hard to make sure I'm playing football week in, week out."
