Leeds United defender Liam Cooper has sent a message to Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook on Twitter.

Cook has been ruled out for between six and nine months after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, as reported by BBC Sport.

The 21-year-old midfielder suffered the long-term injury during Bournemouth’s Premier League game against Huddersfield Town on Tuesday evening.

 

Leeds defender Cooper - who is himself on the sidelines at the moment with a knee injury that will keep him out for up six weeks, according to BBC Sport - has wished his former Leeds teammate Cook a speedy recovery on Twitter.

Cook started his professional club football career at Leeds and joined Bournemouth in the summer of 2016 for an initial transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £6 million.
