Wales coach Giggs: Brooks excites fans - he could do so at Man Utd

Wales coach Ryan Giggs says Bournemouth winger David Brooks is capable of thriving at Manchester United.

Giggs is aware of talk of Brooks interesting his old club.

He said, "He's a very talented player. He ended the season playing a lot of games, but it's a long time out.

"I've seen there's speculation about a lot of players. Brooksy's obviously a talented player and now Bournemouth are in the Championship. I've always said it's better if the lads are playing, and the higher the standard the better as well. But that isn't always a given.

"Some players have gone to Premier League teams and not actually played. We've got a lot of lads in the Championship. I don't think it would matter with Brooksy, even if it's in the Premier League or Championship, he'd still have that bit of class.

"There's a lot of speculation with a lot of Premier League clubs, United included. He's a player who gets you off your seat, he's someone who likes to take players on and make things happen."
