Eddie Howe has assured Jermaine Defoe that he has a future at Bournemouth, according to the Mirror.
The England international, who turned thirty-six earlier this month has barely featured for the Cherries in the league this season racking up just thirteen minutes across three substitute appearances.
His only starts have come in the EFL Cup, while he hasn’t scored since netting a late equaliser at Watford back in March.
In total, Defoe racked up twenty-six appearances in all competitions last season, scoring four goals having signed for the south coast outfit in the summer of 2017.
He is currently seventh on the list of all-time Premier League goalscorers, just one behind Robbie Fowler.
The former Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, Portsmouth and Sunderland man made a return to international football last year and is currently on fifty-seven caps for his country.
Bournemouth host Norwich City in the fourth round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday evening and Defoe can be backed at 4/1 to open the scoring.
