Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is frequently linked with vacancies in the Premier League but is determined to concentrate on his job on the South coast.
"I always say it (managerial speculation) is definitely not distracting for me. I shelter myself from any kind of news that doesn't influence the team I am preparing to play," said Howe.
"I always say if I am linked, or my players are linked, with other clubs, then that has to be flattering and viewed as a good thing.
"But I spend no time focusing on those things. All week it has been about preparing for Tottenham."
