Michael Brown insists that Lewis Cook is a Premier League quality player as Leeds United plot a move to re-sign the midfielder from Bournemouth.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Leeds and Fulham star has lifted the lid on how impressed he was with the York-born talent when he broke into first-team training at Elland Road.
As revealed by Football Insider, the Whites are looking at bringing the 23-year-old back to West Yorkshire this summer as they prepare to swap divisions with Bournemouth.
Now Brown, who was in the senior Leeds side when Cook broke through the youth ranks at Elland Road, believes the midfielder needs to be playing top-flight football next season.
“I remember when Lewis came over to the first team, I was in one of the training ground sessions he first joined in,” Brown told Football Insider.
