The Wigan Athletic forward Charlie Wyke is being treated in hospital after collapsing during training earlier this week.

The club confirmed Wyke was taken for medical treatment before Tuesday’s League One game with Cambridge and that he will not be available for selection for the immediate future. “Charlie is in a stable condition and in communication with his family, hospital staff and the club’s medical team,” read a club statement.

Wigan’s chief executive, Mal Brannigan, added: “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.”
