Former Sheffield United favourite David Brooks given cancer all-clear

Written by James Wilson

Ex-Sheffield United star David Brooks says he is “cancer free” after a battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

The 24-year-old Wales international has not played for his current club Bournemouth since his diagnosis in October.

In a statement released on his personal Twitter account, Brooks said: “I am delighted to say my treatment has been 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 the tough times,” he added.

Making his first team debut for Sheffield United in 2016, Brooks made 39 appearances for the Blades before transferring to Bournemouth for £11.5m in 2018.

Capped 21 times by his country, Brooks made three outings for Wales at the delayed EURO 2020 finals last summer.

Brooks spoke of his desire to get back to doing what he does best as soon as possible.

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