David Brooks has been a revelation in his first Premier League season.

The fresh-faced play-maker has taken to life at Bournemouth like a duck to water, scoring seven times and providing five assists to establish himself as a potential front-runner for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

In short, the Welsh wizard has all the raw talent to follow in the footsteps of his compatriots Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey.

But, as long as Mike Ashley remains at the helm of Newcastle United, the chances of Brooks wearing the famous black and white stripes look slim.

According to the Daily Star, Rafa Benitez wants to bring Brooks to Tyneside in the summer alongside his Bournemouth team-mate Ryan Fraser and Burnley winger Dwight McNeil.

Now, Brooks is a typical Newcastle signing in many ways; he is young, promising, and has a huge re-sale value. But he’d also cost somewhere in the region of £50 million, according to the Mirror, with that eye-watering price-tag more than likely to burst Benitez’s bubble. His value has certainly rocketed since he joined Bournemouth from Sheffield United for £11.5million.

Brooks would be a dream signing for Newcastle, but don’t expect Ashley to make this a reality.
