Mathieu Baudry may have done enough to extend his stay at Bournemouth after boss Lee Bradbury suggested he could offer the defender a new deal.
The Frenchman bagged his first goal for the Cherries in their late comeback win over Bristol Rovers on Easter Monday, which kept their play-off push on track.
And Bradbury admitted the 23-year-old had impressed him since breaking into the side in March, having signed in the January transfer window.
"He has had to be patient but is very professional. He does everything 100% right all the time," he told the Daily Echo.
The Dean Court boss also hinted that he was considering offering Baudry a contract extension.
"I like him as a lad and as a player, so I will probably address these things in the next couple of weeks," Bradbury added.
