Bournemouth winger David Brooks has been urged to ignore any interest from Sheffield United should it come about in January.
Rumours seem to continue to circle around Brooks and a return to the Blades, following Aaron Ramsdale’s similar move in the summer.
As of now, any talk of Brooks making the switch back to S2 has been played down by local media sources, with a deal thought to be too expensive for the Blades to pull off.
However, Talksport yesterday stated that Chris Wilder is ‘working hard’ to bring Brooks back. But speaking on the same show, former England, West Ham, and QPR midfielder Trevor Sinclair believes Brooks should stay put.
“I think Brooks would want to stay at Bournemouth .I look at the way he’s enjoying his football. You look at the situation with Sheffield United, they look in real trouble. I’m not sure they’re going to be able to stay up this season,” Sinclair said.
“But certainly, he’s had a bit of time at Bournemouth. He’s got fit again. He looks like he’s enjoying his football. I’d say stay put, if you’re enjoying your football and you’re having success with the team, stay put.”
Brooks has helped Bournemouth to second in the Championship table, with the Cherries sitting just behind Norwich at the summit.
The Welsh midfielder moved to the Cherries back in 2018 for a fee in the region of £11.5m, according to the BBC.
It just won’t go away this one
Every time you think we have moved on from the David Brooks rumours, something else comes along to fuel the fire again.
Sinclair’s comments are an example of that but it’s the comment that WIlder is working hard to bring him back that is striking.
Where that comes from, is unknown. But United do need creativity, so it wouldn’t be too surprising to see the Blades boss pushing the board to do a deal for Brooks.
As always, we will have to wait and see with this one.
