Arsenal legend Henry emerges as shock favourite to join Bournemouth

Thierry Henry has emerged as a shock front-runner to become Bournemouth's next manager.

The Cherries have held out on appointing a new manager following Jason Tindall's dismissal last month.

Jonathan Woodgate has been appointed as interim coach and is being considered for the job full-time.

And the Daily Mailsays Arsenal legend Henry is also on Bournemouth's list of candidates.

Henry's former team-mate Patrick Vieira - who last coached French side Nice - has been included, as has former Huddersfield boss David Wagner.

Chelsea legend John Terry, an assistant at Aston Villa, is an outsider for the role.

Henry is currently in charge of MLS side Montreal Impact, with one year remaining on his contract.
