DAVID BROOKS will cap his recovery from cancer with a Wales call-up next week.
The Bournemouth winger, 25, made his first start in 598 days in the 1-0 Premier League loss to Manchester United last Saturday.
But, as revealed by SunSport in March, Brooks, will be named in Robert Page’s squad next Tuesday for the Euro 2024 qualifiers against Armenia and Turkey in June.
Brave Brooks, who has made five Bournemouth appearances in total, has fought back from his stage two Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosis in October 2021.
Page confirmed: “He will most definitely be in the squad.
“I am pleased for him because he's had a long journey.

“I got a bit excited in March.
"I tried to get him on camp then because you want your best players around you. He definitely falls into that category.
"We knew we had to manage it. You don't go through what he's gone through and not have little setbacks along the way.
"Bournemouth have been incredible with the way they have handled it and got him back up to speed. It's great that we have got him available."

Brooks' last of his 21 Wales caps came at Euro 2020 when he was a sub in the 4-0 hammering by Denmark.
While Brooks returns, Page is waiting to find out if Nottingham Forest’s Neco Williams will be available for the Group D double-header on June 16 and 19.
Full-back Williams has been out of action since he broke his jaw in April.
Page added: "There’s conversations to be had with ourselves and the club, both medical teams.
"The squad is going to be announced next week. We will have conversations in the meantime and see where we are at with that before we make that decision."
