Aston Villa No2 Terry ahead of Vieira as favourite for Bournemouth job

Aston Villa assistant manager John Terry is favourite for the Bournemouth job.

The Mirror says Bournemouth are interviewing managerial candidates this week with caretaker boss Jonathan Woodgate suddenly making a strong case.

Former Middlesbrough boss Woodgate has overseen back-to-back wins since taking temporary charge, including guiding Bournemouth into the FA Cup quarter finals.

Ex-England captain Terry, currently No2 at Aston Villa, is still the favourite with many bookies while ex-Nice manager Patrick Vieira has also been tipped to succeed Jason Tindall who was sacked after an indifferent start to the campaign.

Former Huddersfield boss David Wagner has expressed an interest while Frank Lampard is likely to wait having only just departed from Chelsea but wants to return to management in the long run.

Oxford boss Karl Robinson could also emerge as a potential candidate having impressed at the League One club and having a strong reputation working with young players.
