Leeds teenager Clarke taken to hospital after touchline treatment

Leeds' Jack Clarke taken to hospital after collapsing during Boro clash

Leeds United chief executive Angus Kinnear confirmed that the club's teenage winger Jack Clarke is heading home from hospital to rest after suffering an illness during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough.

The incident saw 12 minutes of injury time added on, bringing the game to a standstill too.

Former Leeds defender Ian Harte, who represents Clarke, revealed the 18-year-old had been discharged from The James Cook University Hospital and thanked the medical teams from both sides.

Clarke has impressed in spells for Leeds this season, with the 18-year-old the latest player to come through the ranks at the club.

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis passed on his best wishes to Clarke when he addressed the media.

Liverpool are reportedly keeping an eye on Leeds United wonderkid Jack Clarke, who is enjoying an impressive debut campaign in the EFL Championship.

"I will say I hope Jack Clarke makes a speedy recovery, looked horrific what happened but fingers crossed he's okay", said a third supporter.

Marco Bielsa, meanwhile, addressed Clarke's situation at the final whistle.

He said: "What we know is that he didn't feel well".

"Jack has had messages from football fans from every club you can imagine and we all really appreciate it", he wrote.

Phillips has enjoyed a better season than Forshaw and will be absolutely buzzing off the back of that late goal which saved a point for his side and atoned for that earlier perceived mistake. The teenager was removed from the Leeds bench on a stretcher by paramedics, having had oxygen administered, and taken to hospital, from where he has since been released.
