Last updated : 26 June 2014 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

AFC Bournemouth have signed Junior Stanislas after the 24 year old rejected a new contract with Premiership new-boys Burnley. The winger has signed a 3-year deal to resume hbis working relationship with Eddie Howe and Jason Tindall.

Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Stanislas is quoted as saying: "Having worked before with the manager, I have always liked what he has done. I always felt confident and comfortable playing for him so wanted to take the opportunity to come here. Leaving Burnley was probably the most difficult decision I have had to make so far alongside leaving West Ham to go to there in the first place. But over the course of last season, I didn’t play as much as I would have liked. I know it was a successful season for Burnley as a club but, for me individually, working for Eddie Howe and speaking to him about the ambition this club has, I wanted to be a part of it going forward. He is very good at getting the best out of players and will always tell you exactly what he is thinking. He will work with you individually on your game and he cares about people. For me, getting the opportunity to work with him again is good".
