Jason Pearce has underlined his commitment to Bournemouth amid growing speculation about his future.
The 21-year-old defender has been a stand-out performer so far this season, with his displays as the club's stand-in captain rumoured to have caught the eye of a number of clubs including Plymouth. But the former Portsmouth youngster is not planning on leaving Dean Court and is preferring to focus on his future with the Cherries.
He told the Bournemouth Echo: "Some of the lads said to me about Plymouth, but I don't know anything about it. I've just signed a three-year deal here and I want to play for the club."
He added: "I've shown my commitment to the club and the club have showed their commitment back to me, and I'm just focused on doing well for Bournemouth.
"I'll just keep proving myself and I don't need to listen to any of the rumours."
