Eddie Howe has been speaking about his decision to leave Burnley Football Club and rejoin Bournemouth.
He told the Bournemouth Echo: "It's been a really tough week.
"I can't speak highly enough of Burnley Football Club, the people who work for the club -
the players and the supporters, who have all been brilliant to us since we walked through the door, and I would like to thank them for that.
"To leave is incredibly difficult, but I feel it's a decision I have to make for my family and for personal reasons, which I can't go into detail on.
"There is only one club I would contemplate leaving Burnley for and that is Bournemouth and that is the situation we found ourselves in."
Howe is set to finalise a three-and-a-half year deal before tomorrow's clash with Leyton Orient.
