AFC Bournemouth are interested in signing Sheffield United midfielder David Brooks, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

The 20-year-old has burst onto the scene at Bramall Lane this season and will be a man in demand over the summer. Bournemouth are the latest club to be linked with the exciting midfielder.

Brooks has played 33 games for Sheffield United in all competitions this season under Chris Wilder. He has also chipped in with 3 goals for the Blades.

He signed a new deal with Sheffield United in October until the summer of 2021 but this has not stopped clubs showing an interest. Brooks represented England at U20 level but has since committed his future to Wales and has played twice for their senior side.

Brooks started his career at Manchester City but signed for Sheffield United in 2014. He spent time on loan at National League side FC Halifax Town in August 2016 and was set to join Chesterfield on loan last summer but the Blades pulled the plug on the deal after Brooks impressed at the Toulon tournament with England.

The decision to keep Brooks at Bramall Lane this season has turned out to be a good one as Brooks has been a key player or Sheffield United. Interest from Bournemouth over the coming months is likely but the Blades’ fans will be praying that they can keep hold of him.
