Bournemouth have signed Lewis Cook from Leeds United in the summer transfer window.
Cook has left Championship club Leeds for Premier League outfit Bournemouth.
As announced on Bournemouth’s official website on Friday, the young midfielder has signed a four-year contract with the Cherries.
The Cherries had to pay Leeds an initial transfer fee of £6 million to secure the services of the 19-year-old, according to The Guardian.
It has also been reported by The Guardian that the fee could rise to nearer £10m with add-ons.
Former Leeds midfielder Couzens has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to the departure of Cook from Elland Road.
The 41-year-old does not seem to be too fussed about the youngster’s exit, but he has urged the club to spend the money they are getting from the deal wisely.
Disappointed that cook has left great potential but 10m for someone who only scored 2 goals and made 2 I believe last year...— andy couzens (@andycuz23) July 9, 2016
And now a chance to spend that money and bring in another 3-4 players of good quality to go with what we have already brought in goodvibes— andy couzens (@andycuz23) July 9, 2016
During the 2015-16 season, Cook scored one goal and created 46 chances in 42 Championship appearances for Leeds.
The 19-year-old midfielder had a pass accuracy of 79% and a shot accuracy of 31%, and won 26 headers, 50 dribbles and 62 tackles.
