Andre Brooks is a young emerging talent that has previously caught the eye during matches for the Sheffield United development team. Now, he’s still performing to those levels but only in the Premier League.
The 20-year-old received an unexpected opportunity in Chris Wilder’s debut game in charge against Liverpool and has impressively maintained his place in the first team ever since.
Having been a part of the Blades setup since the age of eight, Andre Brooks has embarked on a remarkable journey.
Hailing from Shiregreen, the local humble lad has showcased his talent once again with another standout performance against West Ham on Sunday afternoon.
In the face of the formidable challenge presented by players like James Ward-Prowse, Brooks displayed his characteristic composure. He not only handled the pressure adeptly but also contributed to his personal highlights reel by executing a cheeky nutmeg on the seasoned international Vladimir Coufal for good measure.
His performances since coming into the first-team have been impressive, for somebody that is learning on the job against some of the best midfielder’s in the world. He’s quickly become a fan-favourite, and the Sheffield United supporters aren’t the only one’s impressed. According to The Star, Manchester United are showing an interest in the 20-year-old versatile midfielder.
