Bournemouth and Wales midfielder David Brooks has been diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma, his club confirmed on Wednesday. 

Brooks, 24, dropped out of international duty last week, with Wales initially citing illness as the reason for his withdrawal. 

He will soon begin treatment following an initial positive prognosis, and says he is determined to get back on the pitch once he is recovered.
