Ex-Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe agrees terms with Celtic

Former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has agreed terms with Celtic.

The Sun says the Hoops' leading candidate to replace Neil Lennon has agreed in principle to take the role.

And barring a last-ditch change of heart, the former Bournemouth manager, 43, is expected to sign a contract worth up to £2million a year and be officially announced early next week.

The fine details of the deal were being ironed out on Friday night, but Celts' chiefs are confident they will get their man.

It's believed he has insisted on full authority on backroom appointments and a sizeable war chest to revamp an ailing squad.
