Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter has distanced himself from reports linking him with moves to a host of npower Championship clubs.

Arter has impressed in the middle of midfield for the Cherries this season, and over the past week has been the subject of reported interest from Cardiff, Watford, Brighton and Crystal Palace but the former Woking youngster only recently penned a new three-year deal at the Seward Stadium and he has dismissed the suggestions as mere speculation.

"I haven't heard anything and it doesn't interest me," he told the Daily Echo.

"I signed a long-term deal here and I want to repay the club for giving me the chance to come out of non-league.

"I never heard anything about it."
