Sheffield United’s David Brooks is being hotly tracked by Everton as they plot a move for him according to a report in the 10th September print edition of The Sunday People.
The 20-year-old midfielder came through the Manchester City academy but was signed by Sheffield United after he failed to make the grade with them. He has been making the Citizens regret letting him go ever since though as he has emerged as a top prospect for the South Yorkshire club. He had a stunning summer with the England U20s after being named the Player of the Tournament for the Toulon Tournament as well as being crucial as his team won it.
He’s also already been involved in some transfer tomfoolery this summer as well as Brooks was meant to be going out on loan to Chesterfield as an exchange when the Blades signed Ched Evans from them, but that ended up being cancelled with reports suggesting that it was due to United wanting to see if the young midfielder could break into their own first team. But now he might even be leaving United.
Everton have a track record of signing some of United’s best, in the past they have snapped up Phil Jagielka and most recently they signed talented young forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and now they have set their eyes on Brooks. They have been very impressed with his performances recently and are highly interested in signing him and could make a move to that end during the January transfer window.
