Man Utd, Tottenham and Liverpool transfer target David Brooks a major Wales doubt after ankle KO


- Advertisment -

DAVID BROOKS is a major doubt for Wales’ Nations League double-header this week after picking up another ankle injury.

The Bournemouth winger sat out the club’s pre-season friendly with Benfica in Lisbon on Sunday.

Brooks was due to fly in a private plane straight to Cardiff after the fixture in Portugal to link up with Ryan Giggs’ squad for the clash against Finland in Helsinki on Thursday and the visit of Bulgaria three days later.

But the injury worry for Jason Tindall’s Championship outfit has cast doubt over his availability for the Dragons.

Bournemouth tweeted: “Brooksy has injured his ankle.” with a picture of the 23-year-old sat next to the dugout ahead of the friendly at the Stadium of Light.

The club’s match feed for the game added: “David Brooks has a minor ankle complaint. Brooks did travel with the team so will be an interested spectator this evening.”

Giggs’ 26-man squad, including Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, are expected to train at their Vale of Glamorgan HQ on Monday where it is expected Brooks will be assessed.

Brooks made just nine Premier League appearances for the Cherries last season after two ankle operations.

The highly-rated wideman sustained an ankle injury in pre-season last July as well as missing the majority of the campaign he also sat out the second half of Wales’ successful Euro 2020 qualifying campaign.

Although Brooks returned in match action when the Prem resumed following the delay in June as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, he was unable to keep Bournemouth in the top-flight.

Brooks was named Welsh Footballer of the Year in 2019 after an impressive start to life at international level.

Since ex-Wales boss Chris Coleman handed Brooks his debut against France in November 2017, he has won 12 caps for his country and scored his only international goal in the 2-1 defeat against Croatia in June 2019.

Brooks, linked with a big-money summer move back to the Prem with Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham, has not played for Wales since the 1-0 defeat to Hungary in June 2019.
