Howe rules himself out
Yep, I know that Eddie Howe - when he left Bournemouth for Burnley - has previous for saying he is going nowhere and then doing the opposite, although he has told The Lancashire Telegraph that his is '100% committed to Burnley.'
The former Pompey man, limited to just minutes during his Fratton days due to injury, had been installed as the bookies favourite, apparently some had even suspended betting on him?!
Well, he is staying at Turf Moor: 'it's an honour and a privilege to be Burnley manager and I'm 100 per cent committed to the club.
'I feel like I'm only just beginning the job.
'We are very keen to build plans here for the long term and bring success to the club long term.'
So, Howe it will not be then...
