Cherries: No approaches for Howe says Mitchell

Cherries boss Eddie Howe is understood to be among the frontrunners to replace Brian Laws at Burnley.[LNB] Laws, together with Preston boss Darren Ferguson, both parted company with their respective clubs earlier today.[LNB] And Howe, who is six months into a three-year contract with Cherries, has already been installed as one of the favourites to take over at Turf Moor.[LNB] Cherries chairman Eddie Mitchell, speaking to the Daily Echo earlier this evening, confirmed he had not received any approaches for Howe.[LNB] Mitchell also said any approaches would be unwelcome and added that he hoped Howe and Tindall had no desire to leave.[LNB] Howe has worked wonders in his first management post at Dean Court, saving Cherries from relegation in his first season and then getting them promoted in his second.[LNB] The 33-year-old has already rejected overtures from Peterborough and Southampton to remain loyal to Cherries.[LNB] However, Howe could be tempted by the lure of the Championship with Burnley currently ninth and just two points adrift of a play-off place.[LNB] Howe took Cherries for training this morning and was due to embark on a scouting mission to watch Brighton host Charlton tonight.[LNB] A flood of money on Howe to become the next Burnley manager saw him backed in from 6-1 to evens with leading bookmakers Victor Chandler today.[LNB]
