Wales and Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks stated on Tuesday he is cancer-free, almost 7 months after being identified with Hodgkin Lymphoma.

Brooks, who was diagnosed with the form of cancer in October, stated he was looking forward to continuing his career.

Brooks has featured 21 times for Wales, with 90 appearances for Bournemouth since uniting from Sheffield United in 2018.

“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,” Brooks cited on Twitter.

“Those words feel incredible to say… would like to say a huge thank you to all of the incredible medical staff for their amazing work and support throughout the process.”

“I am so excited to start the journey back to full fitness and continuing my football career… I am determined to work my hardest over the months ahead and I can’t wait to be back out there.”

Bournemouth, who compete in the second-tier Championship, will be looking to book a comeback to the Premier League when they host promotion rivals Nottingham Forest later on Tuesday.

Bournemouth are currently in the second automatic promotion spot with 82 points, 3 clear of third-placed Forest with 2 matches to spare. They are 8 points behind champions Fulham.
