Jack Clarke has expressed his appreciation for the outpouring of support he has received since collapsing during Leeds United's 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough.

The Championship game was stopped for seven minutes due to the incident and it has been confirmed that Clarke was taken to hospital for further assessment.

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.

A statement from Leeds clarified that the player "began to feel unwell during the second half", adding that he "is responsive and attending hospital with the club's head of medicine and performance".

Speaking on Sunday, chief executive Angus Kinnear informed fans of a decision taken by the club to let Clarke miss training and matches this week.

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