Bournemouth have completed the signing of David Brooks from Sheffield United on a four-year deal.

Brooks, who joins for a fee of £11.5million, becomes Cherries' manager Eddie Howe's first signing of the summer.

The 20-year-old has three caps for Wales after making his international debut in November 2017 and scored three goals in 33 appearances for Sheffield United.

Howe said: "David is a player we have been looking at for a long time. He is technically very good, has huge potential and will fit our philosophy in terms of how we want to play.

"We've seen enough to suggest he is a player who could be outstanding at this level in the future if he develops in the right way and is willing to learn and improve."

Brooks told Bournemouth's official website: "The chance to come and play for a club in the Premier League is a great opportunity for myself. I'm delighted to be on board.

"When you look at Eddie Howe as a manager you want to be involved in something like that. He's got big ambitions and with younger players he develops them well and he gives them a chance.

"That's something I'm looking for and he was one of the main attractions for me to come to Bournemouth."

Brooks scored for England during the final of the 2017 Toulon Tournament before choosing to play for the Wales' senior squad, who he qualified for through his mother.
