Midfielder joins the Cherries on a four-year deal...

Leeds United can confirm that midfielder Lewis Cook has joined Premier League side Bournemouth for an undisclosed fee.

The Club would like to thank Lewis for his contribution throughout his time here and wishes him the very best for the future after signing a four-year deal with the Cherries.

Cook, who featured 47 times in all competitions for United last season, progressed through the ranks at Thorp Arch to make his first-team debut at the start of the 2014/15 campaign.

The England Under-19s midfielder was crowned the Football League Young Player of the Year in April on the back of a season which saw him take his United appearance tally to 85 in just two years.

Cook first joined the club aged six and had already represented England at youth level by the time he signed scholarship terms in 2013, with the midfielder going on to play a key role in England Under-17s’ European Championship-winning campaign the following year.

Cook established himself as one of the country’s brightest prospects during his breakthrough season, featuring 38 times for United before having his campaign cut short by injury.

He signed a new two-year deal at Elland Road last summer but, after much speculation, Bournemouth moved to secure his services in the top-flight and finalised the deal on Friday evening.
