Bournemouth

Rivals eye Cherries ace

5th February 2019, 10:58 by Nick Harris

With a host of clubs chasing him, Bournemouth face a fight to keep hold of attacking midfielder David Brooks at the end of the season.

Brooks was only signed by Eddie Howe last summer when the club paid £11.5m to Sheffield United for his services but his performances have caught the eye of many admirers.

Manchester United, Tottenham and his former club Manchester City have all been linked with the 21-year-old Wales international.

Brooks started his career at City but was allowed to move to the Blades at the age of 17, a decision they now probably regret as his value soars.

Howe has no intention of selling him but will face a summer of speculation if his performances continue in the same vein.

Brooks is currently out of the side for the next three weeks at least after turning his ankle in the 4-0 win over Chelsea.
