An update on the future of David Brooks has, on Tuesday, been forthcoming.

Brooks’ Bournemouth stint

David Brooks joined Bournemouth in the summer of 2018, from then-Championship outfit Sheffield United.

The Cherries are understood to have paid United just over £10m for the attack-minded midfielder’s services.

Brooks went on to enjoy a fruitful debut campaign on the south coast, notching seven goals and five assists in 30 Premier League outings.

However, the Welshman’s 2019/20 campaign was riddled with injury.

Brooks suffered ligament damage last July, and was originally expected to be out until December.

However, the 22-year-old was then forced to undergo a second operation, meaning he had to wait until June for his first outing of the season.
