Patrick Vieira, David Wagner and John Terry are all on Bournemouth’s shortlist for the vacant manager’s job.

Former Schalke and Huddersfield boss David Wagner is also on a shortlist of four candidates
Vieira, Wagner and Terry have emerged as the three favourites for the role after former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard decided against going for the job.
Jonathan Woodgate has been in temporary charge of the Cherries since Tindall and he is also being considered for the role.
Woodgate has impressed with the assistance of Harry Redknapp, with Tuesday night’s FA Cup fifth round victory over Burnley a highlight so far. He has been told his last game as caretaker – regardless of whether he is appointed as manager or not – will be away at Nottingham Forest this weekend.

Former Arsenal midfielder Vieira has been out of work since he was sacked as manager of Nice in December.
The 44-year-old was dismissed after Nice were knocked out of the Europa League and a string of poor results which left them 11th in Ligue 1.
Wagner is understood to be keen on managing a side in the Championship which has the potential to return to the Premier League.
John Terry has been given Dean Smith’s blessing at Aston Villa to pursue a head coach role
Wagner, who led Huddersfield to the top flight through the play-offs in 2017, has been out of work since September.
The 49-year-old was in charge of Schalke for just over a year before he was sacked after a run of 18 matches without a win.
Terry has worked as an assistant coach at Aston Villa under manager Dean Smith since 2018.
Smith has previously said that he wouldn’t stand in Terry’s way should the former Chelsea defender want to try and establish himself a manager.
