Bournemouth goalkeeper Shwan Jalal has revealed that talks over a new contract have stalled.

The 27-year-old, who made 48 appearances last season, has one year remaining on his current deal and feels that the club are underestimating his value.

"I am in the last year of my contract so both myself and the club are keen to do something. Unfortunately, we couldn't come to an agreement which was a shame," Jalal told the Daily Echo.

"I have not said that I want to leave Bournemouth or anything like that, but I felt that I wanted to be rewarded for how I have done over the time I have been here.


"Unfortunately, at the minute, nothing has been agreed. The ball is in Bournemouth's court and I am happy to listen to what they have got to say.

"In the meantime, I will carry on giving 100 per cent for Bournemouth as I usually do. But it is disappointing that nothing has come of the talks."
