Sheffield United still keen on Bournemouth keeper Aaron Ramsdale

The Blades reportedly approached Bournemouth with a £12m bid last month, which was instantly rejected by the Cherries.

However, with uncertainty continuing surrounding Dean Henderson’s return to Bramall Lane next season, Chris Wilder is keeping his options open.

Bournemouth boss Jason Tindall confirmed a bid had been received, but that it fell way below their valuation of the England U21 star.

United will now assess their options, but if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer agrees to a second loan for Henderson, they are likely to stick with him for next season.


Jason Tindall revealed he was pestered to take the job by his 10-year-old son.

The new Bournemouth boss has revealed how his family influenced his decision to accept the new role.

Jason Tindall has been Howes assistant for more than 11 years in two spells with Bournemouth, either side of a 21-month stint at Burnley, and the pair have remained in contact.

He was away on holiday when he learned long-serving predecessor Eddie Howe was leaving. It seems that while he discussed the situation with his wife, his ten year old son Levi, a member of the club’s youth team picked up on the conversations. From that point on he did what any good ten year old would.

And it was the persistent question of ‘What are you going to do, Dad? Are you gonna be manager?” that played a huge part in his decision.

Tindall’s only previous managerial role came at non-league club Weymouth between 2007 and 2008. But he will be targeting an immediate Premier League return for the Cherries following relegation on the last day.

He does not know what his former colleague next’s career step will be but does not expect Howe to walk away from football completely.

Bournemouth could look internally for Howe replacement

Howe left his role as Cherries boss by mutual consent over the weekend, much to the surprise of those involved with the club.

The 42-year-old leaves the Vitality Stadium after more than a decade at helm, a stint which has seen him take the club on a remarkable journey from League Two relegation candidates to a top half Premier League finish.

With the Cherries’ 5-year top flight odyssey coming to an end last month, Howe feels the time is right for a fresh face to take charge on the South Coast.

However, it is understood that the club are keen to maintain Howe’s style of play despite his departure, meaning an internal appointment is a distinct possibility.

The obvious name is Jason Tindall, Howe’s assistant for several years at Bournemouth – reports suggest he is in the frame to take the reigns.

If the Cherries are looking for an external appointment though, former Wigan boss Paul Cook – who left the Latics last week – is a snug fit in terms of footballing philosophy.

Furthermore, Cook has links to the South Coast having been the manager of Portsmouth between 2015 and 2017.
