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.
