The favourite to take over at AFC Bournemouth is former manager Eddie Howe.

He left the Cherries nearly two years ago to manage Championship Burnley. Reports suggest Howe is keen to re-join family on the south coast and that the clubs are discussing compensation.

He's likely to be accompanied by his backroom staff - including assistant manager Jason Tindall.

Howe took training at Burnley as normal on Wednesday and this morning, as the clubs discuss a financial package.

The 34 year old made more than 200 appearances for Bournemouth and managed them for two years - during which time he masterminded promotion to League One.

Since his departure though, the club has failed to replicate such success, under former managers Lee Bradbury and most recently Paul Groves.
