​Premier League clubs Liverpool and Tottenham are reportedly leading the chase to sign young Sheffield United star David Brooks. 

The 20-year-old midfielder has broken into the United side this season, and has one goal from 10 ​Championship appearances this season. 

The young starlet has also recently made his international debut for Wales. He made a substitute appearance earlier in the month in Wales' defeat to France, and also made his first start against Panama days after. 


​The Mir​ror are reporting that ​Liverpool or Spurs would have to pay up to £20m to land young midfielder, whose stock has risen considerably in the last month thanks to some impressive performances. 

The Warrington-born Brooks, who was eligible to play for both England and Wales and made a handful of appearances for England's Under-20s, ultimately decided to represent the country of his mother.  

​​Brooks was hailed for his man of the match performance in the Sheffield derby earlier in the season. The midfielder grabbed an assist in United's comprehensive 4-2 victory over bitter rivals ​Sheffield Wednesday

The Blades now find themselves in second place in the Championship, just two points behind league leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

Sheffield have recently signed Brooks to a four-year deal, suggesting that they plan to keep hold of the midfielder for the long term.

​​However, with more impressive displays, Brooks' Premier League suitors could be growing as Liverpool and ​Tottenham in particular look keen to battle for the signature of the Wales international.
