HOUSE-hunting David Brooks is looking to establish firm foundations with his Cherries team-mates as he continues to adjust to life down south.

The summer signing from Sheffield United has been part of Eddie Howe’s squad since making his £10million move to Vitality Stadium in July.

Brooks has enjoyed a stellar start to his Premier League career, featuring in Cherries’ first three top-flight games as they remained unbeaten.

The attacking midfielder, who was an unused sub at Chelsea on Saturday, was drafted in to the Wales squad after impressing watching boss Ryan Giggs during Cherries' opening-day win against Cardiff.

He could feature on the international stage when the Dragons host the Republic of Ireland in the UEFA Nations League tomorrow (7.45pm).

Brooks, who signed a four-year contract at Vitality Stadium, has been balancing adapting to the Premier League with settling down in Dorset.

Permanent accommodation is still an issue for the Warrington-born youngster, but he believes Cherries’ squad have made him feel at home.

The 21-year-old told the Daily Echo: “I haven’t found a place. I am going to be renting while I’m looking for a house.

“It’s a big move for myself and it has been a case of trying to hit the ground running and get embedded with the lads as quickly as possible.

“They have helped me a lot in terms of getting me involved and making the effort with me. It has made my job a lot easier and means I can focus on my football.

“As soon as I came in and started training with all the lads, I could tell the intensity and quality of the players and what the Premier League standard was.”

Brooks had been helped by a familiar face in goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale – the duo having played alongside each other for the Blades in a 6-0 FA Cup first round win over Leyton Orient in November 2016.

“He is a good mate of mine off the field, so having him here was just a bonus,” added Brooks, when asked about his former Bramall Lane team-mate.

“I have been going out with him. A few of the other lads have joined in as well and it’s just a case of getting to know them.”

Brooks earned his senior international debut for Wales under Chris Coleman against France in November.

He was part of a youthful side to take on the likes of now-World Cup winners Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappe.

The youngster then made his first start for the Dragons against Panama four days later and picked up the man-of-the-match award.

Under Giggs, a player he looked up to growing up as a Manchester United fan, Brooks played in front of more than 82,000 fans during a 0-0 draw with Mexico in Pasadena.

Wales host the Republic of Ireland at Cardiff City Stadium before visiting Denmark on Sunday.
