Leeds are traditionally a bigger club than Bournemouth, but the Whites have not featured in the Premier League since 2004.
Bournemouth are a Premier League team at the moment, and it is a step up for Cook to leave Leeds for the Cherries in the summer transfer window.
During the 2015-16 season, Cook scored one goal and created 46 chances in 42 Championship appearances for Leeds.
The youngster had a pass accuracy of 79% and a shot accuracy of 31%, and won 26 headers, 50 dribbles and 62 tackles.
