The young footballer is ready to get back to his best.

David Brooks has issued an extremely positive update, after the Bournemouth player underwent successful cancer treatment.

Back in October of last year, Brooks was diagnosed with Stage II Hodgkin Lymphoma, and quickly stopped playing football to be treated for his illness.

The 24-year-old took to Twitter on Tuesday to confirm that he is now officially cancer free.

He wrote: “I have thankfully completed my cancer treatment. I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the incredible medical staff for their amazing work and support throughout the process.

“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.

“Those words feel incredible to say and I am so thankful for all of your messages and good wishes, these really helped me through tough times.”

He also said that he is now ready to get himself back to full fitness, and get back to playing football.

He concluded: “I am determined to work my hardest over the months ahead and I can’t wait to be back out there and playing in front of you on the pitch in the not so distant future. Thank you again.”

Brooks is a Welsh international, and could be eyeing a return to the Wales squad in the near future, if his return to fitness goes according to plan.

Not too long ago, he was being heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, which shows just how highly rated he is.

Bournemouth could well be playing in the Premier League in a few month’s time, and it would be incredible to see the Welshman competing at the top level again.
