David Brooks has had a fantastic season for Bournemouth so far after moving to the Cherries in a £10 million deal from Sheffield United last summer. The midfielder has been one of Bournemouth’s best players this season, having registered 6 goals and 4 assists in the Premier League so far.
Brooks’ performances have attracted the interest of several big hitters in the Premier League, including Tottenham. It was reported last month that Spurs were lining up a £50 million summer bid for the midfielder. (Source: Daily Mirror)
However, the BBC have reported today that Brooks has now signed a long-term deal with Bournemouth. The fact that the club have offered him a new deal less than a year after they signed him shows that the Cherries were aware of the interest the Welsh international was attracting from other clubs.
This news certainly comes as a blow to Spurs as he would have been a great addition to the squad particularly given the fact that it looks like it might be Eriksen’s last year with the Lillywhites.
While the new deal doesn’t completely rule out the possibility of Brooks leaving the club in the summer, his asking price is likely to have gone up considerably, thus potentially putting him out of Tottenham’s reach.
