There has been plenty for Sheffield United to be positive about on their return to the Sky Bet Championship, with Chris Wilder’s side looking like an outfit capable of delivering yet another promotion, but this time to the Premier League.
Wilder’s side have used last season’s momentum well, and enter November’s international break second in the Championship table, well placed for a push for promotion over the rest of the campaign.
There have been plenty of standout performers at Bramall Lane this year, but one player in particular has excited Sheffield United’s supporters, 20-year-old, David Brooks.
There is a lot of talk about Brooks at this current time, and our writers take a look at the youngster, debating how much he could be worth in five years time…
The way he’s going about £20m at least.
Brooks has shot onto the scene this season with big goals and performances in big games and should only get better.
He’s at the perfect club to develop but whether he is there in five years is up for debate. He could go right to the top.
Everybody needs to calm down.
Brooks looks good, but seriously, what has he done so far? Has a couple of good games and he’s in the Welsh squad. Has a couple of good games and he’s spoken of as the best youngster in the division.
Brooks needs to continue his good form for the rest of the season to be considered the real deal, and only then can we put a price on his head.
You’d have to say around £25m.
That’s the hope anyway. Brooks has the potential to be a star and a regular in the Premier League, so if he gets near that level in five years you automatically attract such a fee.
Of course, there’s a lot of time between now and then, and he has to continue improving, but it looks like he will.
Brooks should be a top-flight player by then, regardless of a where Sheffield United are.
