Jason Tindall hopes to assemble a squad at Bournemouth that can win promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking - and the new Cherries' boss could yet have an influence on Newcastle United's summer transfer plans.

Tindall has stepped up as the club's new manager following Eddie Howe's departure last week. The former defender has served Bournemouth as a player and a coach for 18 years and assisted Howe as the Cherries won three promotions in six seasons, which culminated in a five-year stay in the top-flight.

It goes without saying that Tindall knows this group extremely well but he has a big job on his hands; Ryan Fraser, Simon Francis, Charlie Daniels and Andrew Surman are among those long-serving players who have already left the club, after their contracts expired, while Nathan Ake completed a £41m move to Man City earlier this week.

Among Tindall's prized assets at the Vitality are Callum Wilson, Joshua King and David Brooks, who are all admired by Steve Bruce, and the new Bournemouth manager faces a fight to hold onto the trio - who have all proved themselves in the Premier League.

However, given how Newcastle United's plans has been affected by coronavirus, it remains to be seen how Bruce makes the most of a smaller budget as he looks to address a number of areas in his squad, particularly up front.

The Newcastle head coach has, naturally, vowed to only bring in honest, hard-working players who would improve his side - Premier League experience would be a huge plus - and has been studying the Bosman market for several months as well as exploring possible loan options.

A number of Tindall's players are currently on holiday - King is back home in Norway, for example - before they are due return to training later this month and it has perhaps been a little telling that, Man City and Chelsea aside, the transfer market has yet to truly burst into life as clubs take stock.

While Tindall has his own ideas, the new Bournemouth boss 'does not intend to rip everything up and start again' as he looks to lead his side back to the Premier League 'at the first time of asking'.

"With such a short turnaround, there's a lot of stuff that needs to be done," he said after his appointment was announced on Saturday. "A lot of planning needs to be done.

"The good thing is I've got some very good staff around me so we know what's expected. We know what needs to be done. It's just a matter of implementing it and getting it done as quickly as possible because before you know it, the players are back and we're starting training again."
