English Premier League side AFC Bournemouth have handed a new contract to Zimbabwean defender Jordan Zemura.
The 20-year old who plays for the club’s U21 team signed a one-year contract extension along with other fifteen academy players.
Speaking to the club’s website about the contract extensions, U21 coach Shaun Cooper said:
The players we have kept and the ones who have progressed from the under-18s all have the potential to impact the first team further down the line.
We wouldn’t have taken any of them if we didn’t feel they had the opportunity to progress. But, of course, everybody’s development moves at a different speed.
Zemura has trained with Eddie Howe’s first-team squad and came off the bench during the 3-0 win over Lyon in a pre-season friendly at Vitality Stadium in August 2019.
He went on to start for the Cherries’ first two group games in the U23s’ Premier League Cup in 2019/20, featuring against Nottingham Forest and Stoke City.
