Welsh Midfielder David Brooks Joins Bournemouth On A Four-Year Deal

Welsh international midfielder David Brooks has teamed up with Premier League side Bournemouth ahead of the new season.

Brooks, 20, has joined the South Coast club from Sheffield United after penning a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

According to Bournemouth Echo, the club will pay the English Championship side the fixed sum of £10m, potentially rising to £11.5m.

He has been rewarded with a big move after a productive season in the second tier of English football where he scored 3 goals in 30 league appearances for the Blades.

On his new acquisition, manager Eddie Howe told the club’s website that: “We’ve seen enough to suggest he could be outstanding at this level.”

“He is technically very good, has huge potential and will fit our philosophy in terms of how we want to play.” He added.

David Brooks had previously represented England at the under-20 level before switching international allegiance to the country of his mother’s birth, Wales.

The three-cap Welsh star made his debut for Wales in an international friendly clash with France in November.
