Howe still eyes England soccer coach job

Bournemouth coach Eddie Howe says he remains committed to the Premier League club but has repeated his belief that managing England is the ultimate job.

Howe was one of the leading candidates to replace Roy Hodgson when he stepped down after England's dismal Euro16 campaign in France and is being linked with the post again following Sam Allardyce's shock departure.

The 38-year-old had previously said he would relish the chance to coach England one day but insisted on Thursday morning he had not heard from the Football Association, while reaffirming his commitment to Bournemouth.

He told a media conference: "They haven't come to me and my message is very similar. I am committed here - I love the job.

"The England job is the ultimate job, I have signed players very recently and I am committed to them. I need to show them the same loyalty that they showed me. It's all hypothetical."
