No talks taken place for John Terry reveals Eddie Howe


Bournemouth boss denies talks about loan move

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has denied any talks with Chelsea over a loan move for John Terry.

It was revealed by Sky Sports on Tuesday that the Cherries were interested in taking on the Chelsea captain temporarily, but Howe is denying that any talks have taken place,

“No. No negotiations with Chelsea at all,” said Howe. “I admire John Terry greatly as a footballer, he’s one of my favourite ever central defenders.

“When I looked at people when I was playing to try and emulate and get close to, he was one that I followed but there’s been no discussions and no meeting. Nothing.”

The apparent interest arose because of Chelsea’s decision to recall loanee Nathan Ake back to Stamford Bridge from Bournemouth, leaving the south-coast side a defender light.

Howe has admitted this was a blow as the young Dutchman has been a key factor in Bournemouth’s impressive run of recent results.

“It was a disappointment Nathan Ake was recalled,” Howe added. “He was improving with every game and was putting in consistent performances.”

“Chelsea have every right to recall him and we respect them for that. We hope the loan benefited all parties.”
