Pompey boss: No grudges on Rotherham return

Have your say

Eddie Howe has dismissed speculation linking him to the vacant Pompey manager’s job.

The odds on the former Bournemouth boss tumbled on Thursday and he was rated as odds-on favourite by some bookmakers yesterday.

But the 33-year-old insists he is staying at Turf Moor, while David Lampitt revealed the hunt for a new boss is now entering its final stages.

The Blues chief executive said: ‘The process of identifying our number one candidate is progressing well.

‘Hopefully, we are nearing the end of our search.’
