Cook is one of the best and most promising young players in England, and the move to Bournemouth is certainly deserved.

It is not easy for any young player to make the step up from the Championship to the Premier League, but Bournemouth fans should be optimistic.

During the 2015-16 season, Cook scored one goal and created 46 chances in 42 Championship appearances for Leeds.

The young midfielder had a pass accuracy of 79% and a shot accuracy of 31%, and won 26 headers, 50 dribbles and 62 tackles.
