Leeds teenager Clarke taken to hospital after touchline treatment

The 18-year-old winger started for Marcelo Bielsa's side but was substituted at half-time.

Clarke sparked a scare over his health, after collapsing on the bench during Leeds United's 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough this past weekend. After feeling bad he recovered and when he was taken to the dressing room he was better, as if he had overcome the problem.

Once there his condition improved and he was fully conscious, responsive and breathing normally when he was taken to hospital for further assessment, accompanied by members of the Leeds medical team.

Clarke was treated by paramedics in the Leeds dugout during the last 10 minutes of the game at the Riverside Stadium before being taken to the James Cook University Hospital for tests.

According to Urquhart, the plan was for the attacker to play 45 minutes in the U23 game against the Owls and said the knock was "hopefully" nothing to worry about.

Unbeaten Davis lived up to his knockout-artist reputation with his 20th win inside the distance out of his 21 victories. The 24-year-old Davis is the youngest USA -born world titlist in boxing and was headlining for the first time.

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.

Bielsa told BBC Radio Leeds: "What we know is that he didn't feel well".

The same story says that Klopp recently sent Liverpool FC scouts to keep tabs on Clarke's progress. "All our thoughts go to the lad Clarke". The delay resulted in 12 minutes of stoppage time being added and Kalvin Phillips scored Leeds' equaliser in the 101st minute.

Marcelo Bielsa's side are now second in the table, trailing Norwich City by two points.

Middlesbrough, sit in fourth, four points behind Sheffield United and six behind Norwich in second.
