Harry Arter said that he has already had a talk with Eddie Howe about his role at Bournemouth and that there may yet be another to come at the end of the season.
The Ireland international has dropped down Howe's list of midfield options. He has been an unused substitute on seven occasions in the Premier League this season. That includes on Wednesday night in Bournemouth's remarkable 3-0 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
After that game, Arter spoke to Paul Rowan of the Sunday Times. The 28-year-old said that he knows what he needs to do in order to re-establish himself as a first-team regular - it's all about taking his chance when it comes along.
However, if his situation does not improve, moving on from the club where he has been since 2010 is an option.
If I am not playing and back in the team there could be a discussion to be had at the end of the season, but at the moment my only aim is to try to do as well as I can for Bournemouth.
Up until this point it has been a good eight years. It’s been such good times and the bad times football-wise have been very rare. Saying that, I have had to get used to this situation from quite early on this season and if it is still the same in the summer rightly for myself and the club we will have to have a look at it.
West Ham were reported to have been interested in signing Arter during the January window - David Moyes is said to be a fan of Arter's tenacity.
