Solanke signs new deal
Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke has signed a new four-year contract with the club.
The English forward, who turns 26 today, is embarking on his fifth full season with the Cherries after signing from Liverpool in January 2019.
He has scored 58 goals in 179 appearances, spearheading the South Coast outfit to promotion to the Premier League in 2021-22 before helping them maintain their top-flight status last term.
Bournemouth CEO Neill Blake said: “We’re thrilled to have someone with such calibre as Dom commit his future to the club having already enjoyed many successful moments together.
“He’s a player and a person that we value extremely highly both on and off the pitch and we’re excited to continue working with him.”
We’re Garner show you
James Garner believes Everton have had a good start to the season despite picking up just one point from their first four Premier League games.
Midfielder Garner, 22, has started all four outings, with the Toffees suffering successive defeats to Fulham, Aston Villa and Wolves before picking up a point in a 2-2 draw at Sheffield United.
But the former Manchester United youngster thinks their lack of points on the board is not reflective of the overall positive performances they have been putting in under Sean Dyche.
He told BBC Sport: “This season, it has not shown in terms of points that we have had a good start, but in our performances against three teams — with the blip against Aston Villa — we created a hell of a lot of chances.
“It is just about putting them away. We have to remain positive, don’t get too down and stay patient, it will come.
“Our squad is definitely strong enough to be middle to top half of the table, that is what I believe.”

Polish defender Jakub Kiwior is loving life under Mikel Arteta at Arsenal
The 23-year-old arrived in North London from Spezia in January and his role with the Gunners is slowly growing, making his first start of the season against Fulham last month.
And the centre-back believes he is learning more and more every day as he fights with William Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes and Ben White for a place in Arteta’s XI.
On life under the Spaniard, Kiwior told Sky Sports: “I’m going to say what all the other players say — that the relationship and co-operation is extremely good and his tactics as well.
“He is able to convey what he means very well. Even if I wanted to say something negative, there is nothing negative to say.
“I was quite surprised that something like this was even possible, that a coach could come up with these concepts to shape our attitude to the game through all sorts of competitions and challenges to focus our minds.”
