Bournemouth

Brooks reveals favoured position

29th November 2018, 17:00 by Aidan Perkins

David Brooks says he's content to play out wide for Bournemouth, even though he's more at home in a central No.10 position.

Brooks has shone since joining the Cherries from Sheffield United in the summer, scoring three goals and weighing in with one assist in 12 Premier League appearances so far.

The 21-year-old has largely operated on the right wing and he says he will play anywhere boss Eddie Howe asks him to - even if he believes his most natural position is in the playmaker No.10 role.

He told Matchday on the club's website: "Naturally I’ve been a number 10, but the gaffer sees me out wide right at the minute so I’ve just got to adapt and make that position my own, staying in the team in that structure."

Brooks also revealed he has some private personal targets he wants to achieve this season but he admits the most important thing is to help the Cherries do well and finish higher than last term's 12th-place finish in the top flight.

He added: "You set yourself individual targets to try and hit and I’m working towards them but the main thing is the team and working towards finishing as high as we can.

"That’s what everyone’s working towards and hopefully we can beat last year."
