Bournemouth will cough up big to sign Sheffield Utd winger David Brooks

Bournemouth will cough up big to sign Sheffield United winger David Brooks.

The Daily Echo says it is understood Cherries have agreed to pay £10million to secure the Welsh international, with add-ons potentially taking the deal to around £11.5m.

Brooks is believed to be undergoing a medical today and his expected arrival – which would be Eddie Howe's first summer signing – could be announced as early as tomorrow.

The Blades reportedly inserted a sell-on clause into the agreement, with Sheffield-based newspaper The Star stating a previous bid in December had been turned down.

Tottenham and Liverpool were also rumoured to be interested in the 20-year-old, who has made 37 appearances for the South Yorkshire club in all competitions, scoring three goals and providing eight assists.
