Howe rejoins Bournemouth as manager


Bournemouth yesterday confirmed they have agreed a compensation package with Burnley to bring Eddie Howe back to Dean Court as manager.

Howe managed the Cherries for two years before moving to Turf Moor last January, and was immediately linked with the post following Paul Groves' exit last week.

Burnley confirmed a package had been agreed, saying in a statement that the 34-year-old former defender had left "for personal and family reasons".

The ambitious Cherries have made a disappointing start to the 2012-13 campaign despite significant funding from wealthy Russian businessman Maxim Demin.
