The Cherries travel to Leicester for Sunday's finale safe for another campaign among the elite having eclipsed last season's tally, now on 45 points following just two defeats - against the top two - out of their last 11 matches.
Howe's squad have again punched above their weight and could end up as high as eighth place should they win and other results go their way.
The Cherries have been linked with summer moves for Chelsea trio John Terry, Nathan Ake and goalkeeper Asmir Begovic as well as Sunderland forward Jermain Defoe, who had a loan spell with the Bournemouth earlier in his career.
'Hopefully there will be no negative surprises for us'.
L'AMF saisie à propos d'une transaction non déclarée — Publicis
Accusé par une association de défense des actionnaires d'avoir truqué sa comptabilité en comptabilisant une indemnité dans ses résultats au titre des opérations courantes, Publicis s'est hier soir défendu et justifié en contestant ces accusations.
The defender has started the last three games for West Brom and Howe said: "I haven't spoken to Marc".
Norwegian striker Joshua King has been a key player for Howe's side, scoring 16 goals in all competitions and the manager is happy that the 25-year-old is getting the recognition he deserves. I want to keep our best players. I want to try to add quality, if we can, to the group, and if we can do that it will be another good window for us. If you have players with good attitudes and ability, and they are the right age, then keep them together.
"Continuity is important to us. The second season we felt would be different in many ways, potentially harder and I think that has been the case", he told reporters.
"I think the difficulty for us is when we bring new players in, for the new players to understand our philosophy and to quickly adapt to how we play".
