Bournemouth have announced the signing of midfielder David Brooks from Sheffield United.

The 20-year-old Wales international has signed a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £10million.

“The chance to come and play for a club in the Premier League is a great opportunity for myself. I’m delighted to be on board,” Brooks told Bournemouth’s website.

“When you look at Eddie Howe as a manager you want to be involved in something like that. He’s got big ambitions and with younger players he develops them well and he gives them a chance.

“That’s something I’m looking for and he was one of the main attractions for me to come to Bournemouth.”

Boss Howe said: “David is a player we have been looking at for a long time.

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

“We’ve seen enough to suggest he is a player who could be outstanding at this level in the future if he develops in the right way and is willing to learn and improve.”
