EDDIE HOWE'S representative has confirmed Celtic's top target is not ready to return to management until the summer.

SunSport revealed on Tuesday that the ex-Bournemouth boss was prepared to wait until the end of the season before taking up the Parkhead vacancy.

Both parties remain locked in talks over a move that would see him replace Neil Lennon and Hoops chiefs remain confident they will get their man. It's believed Howe would prefer to wait until June before returning to the dugout as he spends time with his family after leaving the Cherries last August.

Celtic's hierarchy are relaxed about the situation and are willing to let Howe begin with a clean slate in pre-season before starting the huge rebuilding job. And a representative from Howe's camp tonight confirmed: "There has been significant interest in Eddie from a number of clubs.

"However, talks of any deal being close are extremely premature. His plan remains to not return to management until the summer at the earliest."

SunSport understands Howe is seeking ressaurances that he will be able to draft in his own backroom team. The one-time touted England and Arsenal candidate is pushing for trusted ally Richard Hughes to be lured away from his role at Bournemouth.
Celtic's board are open to the idea, but it would mean ripping up plans to appoint Manchester City's Fergal Harkin as director of football. But crucially, majority shareholder Dermot Desmond is willing to play the waiting game to land number one choice Howe.
