Bournemouth

Brooks will to switch positions for Cherries' cause

5th March 2019, 15:56 by Alex Jack

Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks says he's happy to play wherever the boss asks him to - although the further forward the better.

The former Sheffield United starlet has taken to life in the Premier League like a duck to water and has already earned himself a new bumper long-term contract at the Vitality Stadium.

With the Cherries suffering a number of injuries to key players this season, Brooks says he is happy to help out where needed to make sure they club climb the Premier League table under manager Eddie Howe.

He told the Daily Echo: "I want to play as high up the pitch as possible to try to create and score goals but if the gaffer needs me to play in centre-midfield then I am happy to do so and I think I can still affect the game there. It’s completely up to him.

"The squad has taken a bit of a hit with long and short-term injuries so if the gaffer needs someone to play out of position and cover a job then I’m happy to do so.

"The aim of me signing was to try to make an impact and to try to affect the team and I think I’ve done that so far and, hopefully, I can continue.

"It’s nice when the fans talk about you but you just want to do your best for the team and to try to help as much as possible."
