EDDIE Howe confirmed Lee Tomlin would be dealt with "internally" following Twitter posts reportedly from the out of favour midfielder last night.

Tweets appearing to be from the midfielder's account said: "A lot of speculation about my future over the past week. I don't even know what's happening myself or if I'll be allowed to leave or not.

"For me, my dream is to play in the Premier League as long as I can but if I am not wanted then I will leave."

The tweets were later deleted.

A further direct message conversation, apparently leaked by a supporter of Leeds United and which is yet to be verified as Tomlin, was critical of Howe's man management skills.

Speaking to the Echo following Cherries' 1-1 draw at Sunderland this afternoon, Howe said: "We will be dealing with Lee internally. He is obviously frustrated at not playing. It is not a huge issue for me, but clearly we would rather he kept his frustrations in house."
