Aston Villa are interested in signing Bournemouth star David Brooks in the January transfer window, talkSPORT has been told.

The Wales midfielder, 23, is a key member of the Cherries’ squad as they look to make an immediate return to the Premier League this season.

He has scored three goals and provided five assists in 17 appearances with Bournemouth in third place after 23 games.

And talkSPORT’s transfer guru Alex Crook has revealed Brooks is a January target for Aston Villa.

He told Thursday’s White and Jordan show: “One player Aston Villa are keen on, I’m told, is David Brooks down at Bournemouth.

“I think it would take a big bid to persuade the Cherries to sell Brooks; he’s a massive part of their own bid to get back into the Premier League.

“But I can see why Dean Smith would be looking at him. Villa have done really well recruiting from the EFL with the likes of [Ezri] Konsa and Ollie Watkins.

“Brooks is a good age and is injury-free now after missing most of last season, and he’s someone who has proven already that he can score and assist goals in the top-flight.

“Aston Villa spent big last summer, they’ve been brilliant this season and signing Brooks would be another sign of ambition and prove they mean business.”

Brooks joined Bournemouth in an £11.5million deal from Sheffield United in 2018.

He scored seven goals and registered five assists in his debut season in the Premier League, before suffering an injury-hit second campaign as his side were relegated to the Championship.
