Howe top of Cherries' managerial wish-list
Sources close to the Echo suggest Cherries could be on the verge of making an official approach for the 34-year-old in the next few days.
Howe was immediately installed as the bookmakers’ favourite after Groves had been relieved of his duties by Cherries this morning.
He is currently in charge of Championship outfit Burnley, having departed Dean Court to take over at Turf Moor in January 2011.
Howe made his first steps into management with Cherries and his immediate impact helped the Dorset club complete a miraculous relegation escape. In his first full season at the helm, Howe then masterminded Cherries’ promotion back to League One.
