Bournemouth signing Connor Mahoney: I wanted to play for Eddie Howe

Connor Mahoney admits the presence of Eddie Howe convinced him about joining Bournemouth.

The former Blackburn Rovers winger agreed to join the Cherries this week.

Mahoney told the Daily Echo: “There were a few other clubs interested but as soon as I heard Bournemouth wanted me, with the chance to work under the gaffer here – it was an easy decision.

“He's one of the best managers around. I trust him with my career and, hopefully, he can help me to the next step.

“It's massive for me to be working under a manager who gives young talent a chance – that's what we need."
