The midfielder jetted back from the Yorkshire giants summer training camp in Ireland to complete his medical with the transfer believed to have been confirmed in time for him to join Bournemouth on their pre-season trip to the United States.
Cook, 19, was named the Football League Young Player of the Year last month after beating off competition from fellow nominees Fulham striker Mousa Dembele and Walsall left-back Rico Henry to land the coveted gong.
Cook followed in the footsteps of the 2015 winner Dele Alli, who has gone onto receive international honours and wide acclaim in his first season at Tottenham. Gareth Bale (2007) and Fabian Delph (2009) are also internationally recognised previous winners of the award.
