DAVID Brooks and Arnaut Danjuma have returned to Cherries training following their respective injury lay-offs.

The pair were both pictured completing running drills back on the grass last week and were yesterday filmed by afcbTV as they rejoined the rest of their team-mates on the training field.

Dutchman Danjuma has been absent since early December due to a stress fracture in his foot, which led to him heading to Qatar and Holland for specialist treatment.

The 23-year-old has played just 10 times for Cherries this season following his £13.7million summer arrival from Belgian side Club Brugge.

Meanwhile Brooks has not featured all season, since first suffering an ankle problem against Brentford in a friendly back in July.

The Wales international has undergone two operations to repair the damage and is now closing in on a welcome return.

Speaking about Brooks on Friday, boss Eddie Howe said: “He is building his fitness and his endurance levels.

“His ankle is feeling okay. I hope he can be integrated into training quite quickly from this point.

“But when you consider the length of time he’s been out – the fact he hasn’t trained with the group – he hasn’t had any games as such, so there’s still a little bit of work to do with him.”

Brooks enjoyed a stellar first campaign at Cherries in 2018-19, scoring seven goals in 33 appearances after joining from Sheffield United for an initial fee of £10million.
