Breaking: Burnley turn down approach for Howe

Burnley have turned down an approach for Eddie Howe from Bournemouth AFC.

Burnley Football Club released a statement regarding the approach, which was confirmed by chairman Eddie Mitchell.

However, it was stressed by the Club that no permission has been given to the League One side to talk to Howe.

Chief executive Lee Hoos said in a statement: “Bournemouth have made an unsolicited and unwanted approach for manager Eddie Howe.

“Burnley Football Club would like to stress that no agreement has been reached and Eddie Howe is still Burnley manager.

“No permission has been granted for Bournemouth to speak to Eddie.”

Howe took training as normal this morning and is contracted to Burnley until 2014. Earlier today it seemed as though a deal was being done, with sources including a BBC reporter claiming compensation had been agreed.

When news first broke of Bournemouth’s interest in tempting Howe back to the south coast, Howe said: “I think this is a Bournemouth story and one I don’t think I should comment on.

“I am proud to be Burnley manager, we have a lot of work to do here and it’s still very early in the job.”

Chief executive Lee Hoos added: “Burnley Football Club would not welcome any approach for Eddie Howe from any club.“We are in the process of building for the future with Eddie and his staff and speculation is an unwanted distraction.”
