Previous clubs:

Lewis Cook became AFC Bournemouth's first ever senior England international as his profile continued to grow in his second season on the south coast.

The midfielder is a product of the youth academy at Leeds United and first played for the first team in 2014.

Cook made 80 appearances in his time there, scoring two goals before signing a four-year deal with the Cherries.

The English midfielder made his debut in the home defeat against Manchester United on the opening day of the 2016/17 Premier League season, while also making appearances in victories over Morecambe, Middlesbrough and Sunderland.

Cook also stood out in his final appearance of the season in the 2-1 win over Burnley at home, playing a magnificent over the top pass from his own half to assist Junior Stanislas in getting the opening goal of the game.

In his second season with the club, Cook again had to bide his time for his chance in the starting but grabbed his opportunity around the festive period as Bournemouth clicked into good form and was a regular starter for he remainder of the season.

Cook has also represented England at U16s right through to U21s level and in the summer of 2017 he captained the England under-20 side to a stunning World Cup victory in South Korea, becoming the first captain to lift a World Cup trophy for the Three Lions in 51 years.

This international recognition was continued with a first senior call up in November 2017 and a debut for Gareth Southgate's side when he came off the bench in a March friendly with Italy at Wembley and was later placed on the standby list for England's 2018 World Cup squad at the season's end.
