Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe insists his future lies at Dean Court after guiding the Cherries back into League One. At 32, Howe is the youngest manager in the Football League and his stock has risen after keeping the south coast club up last season despite the fact that they started the season with a 17-point deduction.
"I will be here next season. I think it's exciting times for the club and for everybody, and I want to be a part of that," he told the Daily Echo. ""I'm already excited about next season and trying to compete with the teams that are in League One.
"As soon as we knew for a fact that League One was where we were going to be, we started preparing for that. You plan short-term - from week to week and game to game - but there always has to be a long-term aim in the background and you have to work to that.
"Year on year, we want to try to improve."
