Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe admits contract running down

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe admits he has 18 months to run on his current deal.

Howe has guided Cherries from the depths of the Football League to their fifth season in the top flight across two periods in charge and is currently the Premier League's longest-serving manager.

The 42-year-old said: “My contract doesn't end at the end of this season. I've got 18 months from now."

Asked whether he was currently negotiating a new deal, Howe replied: “No. At the moment, I am concentrating on the games. They come thick and fast.

“People ask me about January transfers etc. I am focusing on Arsenal and that will go the same for my own future."
