AFC Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks has confirmed that he was cancer-free.

The 24-year-old was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma back in October and has been undergoing treatment for the disease over the course of the last six months.

In a statement, the player said: “Last week I met with my specialist having reviewed my final test results. I am delighted to say the treatment was successful and I can now say that I have been given the all-clear and am now cancer-free.

The Welsh midfielder has had a tricky time during the early stages of his career, fighting off injury issues and now cancer despite being part of the Wales team that competed in Euro 2021.

After breaking through with Sheffield United in 2018, Brooks moved to Bournemouth for £11.5m in 2018, where he has played since.

Brooks may well be back in the Premier League next season as Bournemouth play Nottingham Forest on Wednesday evening with the chance to secure promotion if they win.
