Ben Pearson already set for massive twist at Bournemouth as Thierry Henry reportedly nears job

Ben Pearson only left Preston for Bournemouth late in the January window, but it’s already been something of a whirlwind for him.

North End cashed in on Pearson before he planned to leave for nothing this summer, with Bournemouth striking a cut-price deal.

Pearson completed a quickfire move to the South Coast before the deadline, but his decision to move and work with Jason Tindall didn’t exactly go to plan.

Tindall was sacked a matter of days after Pearson’s arrival, and he has been working under caretaker Jonathan Woodgate in recent weeks.

Now though, Pearson’s time with the Cherries could take another incredible twist, as legend Thierry Henry could become his new manager very quickly.

The Mirror report that the Arsenal hero is nearing a move to become Bournemouth’s new manager, beating competition from David Wagner.

Bournemouth’s hierarchy allegedly see Henry as the man to inject some life back into their campaign, ad are ready to prise him away from CF Montreal in Major League Soccer.

Playing for a world-renowned figure like Henry may be something of a dream for Pearson, and we’ll soon see whether he can prove himself to the Frenchman.
