Wigan Athletic striker Charlie Wyke is in a stable condition in hospital after collapsing during training earlier this week.
The 28-year-old was training with the squad as part of their preparation for the League One match against Cambridge United on Tuesday and fell ill.
Wyke was treated by the club’s medical staff following his collapse earlier this week before being taken to hospital and continues to be closely monitored.
Wigan Athletic chief executive, Mal Brannigan, said: “First and foremost, the absolute priority for everyone associated with Wigan Athletic is Charlie’s health and wellbeing and providing support to him and his family.
“As a club, we would like to place on record our sincere appreciation to all of the staff within the NHS who, within what we know are challenging times, were excellent in their response and subsequent care for Charlie, working together with our medical team.
“Clearly this news will cause alarm, though we would politely request that the privacy of Charlie and his family is respected. At the appropriate time, we will look to provide further updates to our supporters.”
