Bournemouth

Howe salutes improving Brooks

22nd November 2018, 04:32 by Michael Holland

David Brooks is adapting well to life in the Premier League and Eddie Howe believes the youngster will get even better.

Brooks arrived at Bournemouth from Sheffield United in a deal worth £10million over the summer but there was a question mark over how he would adapt to life in the top flight.

Cherries boss Howe says he could not be happier and believes he will only get better the more he plays, once he has the stamina to go hard for the full 90 minutes.

"I think Brooksy has done very well physically," Howe said. “I still think there is a physical improvement in him in terms of playing 90 minutes, going late in games and being able to maintain his intensity from the first minute to the last.

“But those progressions I think will happen over time. I see an improvement in him week in, week out in terms of his ability to recover and get back behind the ball in those long runs we ask our players to do.

“I see no reason why he can’t do that for a long time to come.”
