Arsenal won't consider Eddie Howe 'for commercial reasons'

Former Sheffield United striker Brian Deane can't see Arsenal seriously considering Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe.

Speculative reports have linked the 38-year-old with a switch to the Emirates Stadium in the future.

"I was happy that candidates for the England job included Steve Bruce, Alan Pardew and Eddie Howe," Deane told Bwin.

"That's how it should be and as English players, you need a manager who understands their culture.

"There have also been rumours that managers such as Howe have been earmarked for grander positions at Arsenal but let's be real, he's not going to get that job - it's not a commercially wise decision."
