Bournemouth boss Howe unsurprised by Chelsea, Man City Ake talk

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe isn't surprised by the transfer talk around Nathan Ake.

Ake has been linked with a return to Chelsea this week, along with Manchester City.

Howe said: “Am I surprised in interest in Nathan? No, because he's been a model of consistency. I think he has performed very well for us for a long, long period of time.

“He's been outstanding for us from the moment he's signed. Not just on the pitch but off the pitch as well.

“He is going to have a big, big part to play in our remaining games in our battle to stay in the Premier League."
