It has been confirmed this evening (Sunday), that Eddie Howe is the new manager of Burnley.

Commenting on the appiointment, Howe is quoted as saying: "It is just a fantastic opportunity for Jason and myself to join such a big, ambitious and progressive club and we are delighted. We had such a great time at Bournemouth and it was always going to take a special club for us to leave because of the fantastic success we have had there in the past two years. We just felt Burnley was that club and we are ready to take on a huge challenge. However it is one we are excited by. The team is in a decent league position but there is still a long way to go".
