AFC Bournemouth could be set to finally agree a transfer deal for long term target Lewis Cook from Leeds United.

The Cherries have been linked with Cook since the end of 2015 and their interest was confirmed by then Leeds United manager Steve Evans during the January transfer window (Click here for previous article).

Lewis Cook remained with Leeds United during the transfer window and boosted his appearance tally to 85 for the Yorkshire club.

It was previously reported by the Daily Mail back in April that the Cherries would return to make ‘a summer move’ for the 19 year old, with AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe frequently seen watching Leeds United matches towards the end of last season.

The Daily Telegraph on Thursday reported that a £6million fee had been accepted and the transfer is set to be completed over the weekend.

Other sources claim the deal could rise to around £10million.




Yorkshire Evening Post’s chief football writer Phil Hay has suggested Cook could be offered a deal worth £30,000 a week.

Love this comment from a Dirty L**ds fan on Twitter:

It’s time for us all to give up and go home, folks.

When a player leaves Leeds United for Bournemouth to further their career then life as we know it and football as we know it is over.
