AFC Bournemouth have agreed a compensation package with Burnley to bring former player and manager Eddie Howe back to the League One club.

The 34 year old left the south coast side two and a half years ago - but he and his family have reportedly struggled to settle in the north.

Bournemouth welcome Howe back after a difficult start to the season which sees them sitting four points off the foot of the table.
