David Brooks has given fans an update on his cancer treatment following his diagnosis last year.

Bournemouth announced their midfielder had been diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin Lymphoma in October 2021.

It came after Brooks, 24, had pulled out of the Wales squad for their World Cup qualifiers with what at the time was described as illness.

Brooks himself also confirmed that he would immediately begin his chemotherapy treatment.

And now he is halfway through that process, he has informed the football community of his "good" progress.

In a statement posted to social media, Brooks wrote: "Firstly, Happy New Year to everyone!

"I feel that now is the right time to update you all on my progress following my diagnosis in October last year.

"I want to thank everyone who got in touch after the announcement.

"I was overwhelmed by the incredible messages of support from family, friends, team mates and across social media during this difficult period.

"I’m currently undergoing treatment and although I’m only halfway through, the progress is good and the outlook is promising and positive.

"I’m keeping in touch with everyone at Bournemouth and the national team and looking forward to an exciting finish to the season for club and country.

"Thank you again for all your love and support. I’m looking forward to hopefully sharing more good news in the months ahead. Best wishes, David."

Before his diagnosis, Brooks had begun the season as one of Bournemouth's key stars in their push to return to the Premier League.

The Cherries are aiming to bounce back to the top flight after relegation in 2020.

Brooks had signed for the south-coast club from Sheffield United two years prior and made a name for himself with his performances.

Formerly of Man City's academy, he attracted the attention of rivals Man United.
