Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe: No England contact

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe insists he's not considering the England.

Howe has been linked with the role after Sam Allardyce's 67-day reign was terminated by mutual consent on Tuesday.

"They (the Football Association) haven't come to me and my message is very similar. I am committed here, I love the job and I have a lot more to do here," he said.

"I think I have said in many interviews that the England job is the ultimate job.

"I have signed players very recently and I am committed to them, I have a future to them, the rest of the season.

"It's all hypothetical of course but I could not turn my back on this club. I want to show loyalty to the people who have employed me, the same loyalty that they showed me.

"It is very nice of (people) to say (that I am the right man for the job), but it has no bearing on my decision. My aims are to move this club forward, to try and lead this club up in the Premier League this season and that is my only thought.

"It sounds arrogant but I am not interested in the job now, but you never know what will happen in the future."
