Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks has been diagnosed with Stage II Hodgkin lymphoma, a form of cancer, and will begin treatment next week. His prognosis has been described as ‘positive’.

Brooks, who joined the Cherries from Sheffield United in 2018, left international duty with Wales last week following a medical examination and the diagnosis has since been confirmed.

“This is a very difficult message for me to write. I have been diagnosed with Stage II Hodgkin Lymphoma and will begin a course of treatment next week,” a statement from the player read.

“Although this has come as a shock to myself and my family, the prognosis is a positive one and I am confident that I will make a full recovery and be back playing as soon as possible. 

“I’d like to show my appreciation to the doctors, nurses, consultants and staff who have been treating me for their professionalism, warmth and understanding during this period.
