AFC Bournemouth boss says midfielder signed from Sheffield United shows value of young homegrown players

Eddie Howe hopes new signing David Brooks will be the next homegrown player at AFC Bournemouth to become an established figure in the Premier League.

Brooks has arrived from Sheffield United and Howe believes the 20-year-old Wales midfielder can emulate Lewis Cook, Ryan Fraser, Jordon Ibe and Tyrone Mings at Vitality Stadium.

"It’s a really good model for the club," the manager told AFC Bournemouth’s official website

"We’ve done it before and been successful with it, and hopefully David will be another who falls into that bracket.

"We’ve seen enough to suggest that he is a player who could be outstanding at this level in the future if he develops in the right way and is willing to learn and improve."
