Burnley boss Eddie Howe has distanced himself from speculation linking him with a return to managerless Bournemouth of League One. Howe spent two years as manager before leaving for Turf Moor in 2011, and is now reportedly a target.
"This is a Bournemouth story and not one I feel I should comment on," said the 34-year-old Clarets manager.
"I am Burnley manager. I still feel we are trying to move forward and there is still a lot of work to do here."
Clarets chief executive Lee Hoos has said he would not welcome any approach for Howe.
"We are in the process of building for the future with Eddie and his staff and speculation is an unwanted distraction," said Hoos.
