David Brooks keen to help Cherries back to the top flight

Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks says that he is quite determined to help the club get back to the Premier League. The cherries were relegated from the top division after a couple of years and they are now trying to find the way back to the top. However, there is a significant danger of losing all of their top players if they continue to stay in the Championship.

Now, Brooks is coming to a decisive stage in his career with the Welsh international attracting a lot of interest from Liverpool and Manchester United.

At this moment, the club are in a competitive position in the Championship, as the fourth in the standings. However, things can go wrong pretty quickly in the second division with the competition quite intense between clubs like Reading, Norwich, Swansea, and Middlesbrough. All of these outfits have recent experience in the Championship apart from doing well in the Premier League. The same cannot be said about Bournemouth, who have spent the last few years the top division.
