(Reuters) - Bournemouth have made their first signing of the current transfer window with Wales international midfielder David Brooks joining the club on a four-year deal, the Premier League side said on Sunday.

The 20-year-old, who made his senior debut for Wales last November, moves to the Vitality Stadium from second-tier Championship side Sheffield United, where he made 37 appearances across all competitions last season.

"When you look at Eddie Howe as a manager you want to be involved in something like that. He's got big ambitions and with younger players he develops them well and he gives them a chance," Brooks told Bournemouth's website here

“That’s something I’m looking for and he was one of the main attractions for me to come to Bournemouth.”

Howe’s side finished 12th in the league last season.
