Stats

Brooks has been on the books of Bournemouth since the summer of 2018 when he joined from Sheffield United for an initial transfer fee reported by The Daily Echo to be worth £10 million.

According to WhoScored, the Wales international midfielder made 29 starts and one substitute appearance in the Premier League for the Cherries during the 2018-19 campaign, scoring seven goals and providing five assists in the process.

Due to injury problems, the 23-year-old made eight starts and one substitute appearance in the league for Eddie Howe’s side this past season, scoring one goal in the process, according to WhoScored, as the Cherries got relegated.

Good signing for Leeds United?

Described by Wales national football team manager Ryan Giggs as “exciting” and a player who “can make a difference” in Clwbpeldroed.org in February 2020, Brooks would be a very good signing for Leeds, not just for now, but in the long run as well.

The attacker would add flair and creativity to Marcelo Bielsa’s team, and his dynamism and youth would help take the burden off of Pablo Hernandez.
