Three-time European champions Manchester United have been dealt a major transfer blow after one of their targets signed a contract extension at his club.
Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks has been linked with major Premier League clubs like Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United as a result of his form for the Cherries.
Earlier reports had claimed that Manchester United are eyeing a £50m for the player.
South Coast club Bournemouth announced earlier on Monday that David Brooks has signed a long-term contract despite the intense transfer rumors linking him with a move away from the club.
The news of his contract extension at Bournemouth is coming less than a year after he joined the Cherries from English Championship club Sheffield United.
Bournemouth paid £10m to secure his transfer from Championship high-flyers Sheffield United during last summer’s transfer window.
Welsh international David Brooks has been in superb form for the Cherries since his transfer.
The 21-year-old has scored six goals in 26 appearances for Bournemouth this season from both central and wide midfield roles.
He missed the last one month of football with a knee problem before returning to action against Premier League champions Manchester City at the weekend.
David Brooks made his return from injury for the 1-0 home league loss to Manchester City on Saturday.
