Bournemouth's Dani Rodrigues and Stephen Purches have both agreed new deals.Bournemouth striker Dani Rodrigues and midfielder Stephen Purches have committed their futures to the club.
The pair have agreed to new one-year contracts with the League One club, despite both players attracting interest from elsewhere.
Purches (pictured) had caught the eye of Sheffield Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock before deciding to accept Bournemouth's offer of a new deal.
Portuguese striker Rodrigues spurned the chance of a return home to join Vitoria Guimaraes in order to extend his stay with The Cherries.
The news is sure to delight Dean Court boss Sean O'Driscoll following his failure to land former Colchester United man Joey Keith this week.
Defender Shaun Maher is also expected to put pen-to-paper on a new deal with the Dorset outfit once he returns from holiday.
