Bournemout midfielder Brooks hopes to use Euros as shop window

Wales midfielder David Brooks hopes to use the Euros as a shop window.

Bournemouth's Wales midfielder was on the radar of Manchester United and Liverpool before a serious ankle injury two years ago.

There were signs that Brooks, 23, was returning to his best last season - and his 15-minute appearance for the Dragons on Saturday added to that.

He said: "I think every player will see it as a chance to impress.

"I'm not going to sit here and disrespect Bournemouth. Obviously, I'm contracted to them. I'm very happy there.

"I'm just looking forward to the Euros to try to showcase what I can do to everyone.

"However many minutes I get in the Euros, I want to take the opportunity to impress those watching.

"The Euros being pushed back meant I was able to take my recovery at an easy, steady pace."
