SHEFFIELD United manager Chris Wilder admitted he would “love” to bring back David Brooks to Bramall Lane in the future and said: “He’s a match winner.”

Brooks burst on to the scene with Cherries in the Premier League during the 2018-19 campaign, having signed from the Blades for £10million in July 2018.

He was hampered by undergoing two operations on an ankle injury last season, featuring just nine times as the Dorset club were relegated from the top flight.

And having already taken Aaron Ramsdale back to south Yorkshire from Vitality Stadium this summer, Wilder admitted he would be keen to bring back Warrington-born Brooks at some stage “if he was available”.

“I’d love, and maybe I’m out of order for saying this but I mean it with the utmost respect, to bring David Brooks back to this football club,” Wilder told the Sheffield Star.

“If he was available that is. Maybe I’m wrong for talking about him. But he’s a match winner.”

Brooks, along with Cherries team-mate Chris Mepham, was yesterday called up to Ryan Giggs’s Wales squad for this month’s international fixtures.

Wales visit England in a friendly next Thursday before Nations League contests against Republic of Ireland and Bulgaria.
