Bournemouth have named veteran forward Lee Bradbury as caretaker manager.

Bradbury, 35, started his career as a prolific forward but has played most of his Bournemouth career at left-back.

He has been named as the man to prepare for Tuesday's visit to Rochdale as Eddie Howe completes his move to Burnley.

Bradbury will be assisted by another stalwart of the Dean Court dressing room in Steve Fletcher.

Fletcher, 38, has made more than 600 appearances for the Cherries in two spells.
