David Brooks has said that his main focus is on helping Bournemouth back to the Premier League this season.
The 23-year-old was heavily linked with a move to both Manchester United and Sheffield United following the Cherries’ relegation to the Championship last term.
Neither side made a formal move to sign the winger leaving Brooks to settle in for a campaign at the Vitality Stadium.
For Jason Tindall’s side, it’s been a decent start to the new season.
Five wins and five draws from 11 games has put Bournemouth in fourth position in the table meaning that they’re firmly in the mix to go up this term – something that Brooks is determined to contribute to.

Speaking to DAI Sports, Brooks said: “Everyone wants to be playing at the big, nice stadiums and on the big occasions hopefully, when the crowds are back in.
“We are all working towards that and, with the squad we’ve got, we’ve got a really good chance.
“We’re all pulling in the same direction to get back into the Premier League and it’s started well so the main focus is to help Bournemouth get back into the Premier League and then to go away and have a good campaign with Wales at the Euros.”
David Brooks is set for a big future in the Premier League.
If he can knuckle down this term and help Bournemouth to secure an immediate return to the top flight then there’s no doubt that he’ll be there to stay.
Fans of the Cherries won’t like me saying, but even if they fail to go up then I’d be very surprised if the Wales international isn’t plying his trade with a top club next time around.
