Eddie Howe and Steve Cotterill in line to become next AFC Bournemouth boss
Burnley boss Eddie Howe has become the favourite to take on the vacant manager position at AFC Bournemouth.
Howe was poached by Burnley from the Cherries in January 2011 after two years in charge at The Goldsands Stadium.
Paul Groves was sacked yesterday as manager after a string of poor results, while Dennis Rofe and Chris Hargreaves are expected to take the club's training session today.
Burnley chief executive Lee Hoos last night issued a hands off warning, but bookmakers Stan James currently have Eddie Howe at 2-1 favourite to take over the role at AFC Bournemouth.

With Burnley reluctant to let their manager speak to the Cherries, a host of other candidates have been linked with the position including Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson and former Portsmouth boss Steve Cotterill.
Cotterill, who was sacked by Nottingham Forest in July, spend two years at Bournemouth as a player.
Chairman Eddie Mitchell has ruled out Harry Redknapp becoming the next Cherries boss. The 65-year-old started his management career at Bournemouth, and took on an advisory role in September. However, the former Portsmouth and Tottenham boss is not expected to be interested in the vacant position at The Goldsands Stadium.
Rofe, who is currently the First Team Coach is likely to take charge of the team when they visit Coventry on Saturday.
