Former Republic of Ireland star Ian Harte leaves Bournemouth after winning promotion to Premier League
Premier League Bournemouth have allowed seven players to leave the club including left-back Ian Harte.
The experienced former Ireland defender, the only squad regular of the seven this season, joins Josh McQuoid, Benji Buchel, Joe Partington, Mohamed Coulibaly and Miles Addison in departing after their contracts expired. Goalkeeper Darryl Flahavan meanwhile has opted to end his stay at the Goldsands Stadium and will leave in search of first-team football.
"This is the heartbreaking part of the job because we are losing some very good people and fantastic characters," said boss Eddie Howe.
