Eddie Howe is set to leave Bournemouth by mutual consent, after suffering relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2019/20 season.
The 42-year-old is a legend at the Vitality stadium, making over 200 appearances as a player, before taking charge as coach and propelling the south-coast side from League One to the English top flight in 2015.
Bournemouth have enjoyed the past five seasons in the Premier League, and Howe has earned plenty of praise for his part in building an exciting and attacking team.
Howe was, however, unable to prevent the Cherries from falling to a final day relegation and his role as the club’s coach had been in doubt for some time.
And Peter Rutzler of The Athletic revealed on Saturday night that Howe is set to leave the club by ‘mutual consent’, bringing an end to his eight-year reign at Bournemouth.
