Wigan Athletic striker Charlie Wyke is reportedly in a stable condition after being rushed off to hospital following a collapse in training. The incident came just days after John Fleck was hurried off the pitch in similar fashion for Sheffield United, prompting concern during their away trip to Reading. 

Wyke fell ill during a Wigan training session earlier this week in which they were preparing for a League One match against Cambridge United. 

The 28-year-old initially received treatment from the club’s medical staff, before being whisked off to hospital. 

At present, he is being closely monitored, but he is communicating with family and staff. 

In terms of club duties, Wyke will be made unavailable for the time being.

Wigan 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.”

The club’s chairman, Talal Al Hammad, also lent his support to Wyke via a social media post. 

“I’m praying that you get better and regain your strength soon Charlie,” he said. 

“You are in all of our wishes as you recover.

“We are all keeping you in our thoughts and prayers, hoping you find strength with each new day. Get well soon.”

Wyke was signed by Wigan during the summer after netting 25 League One goals for Sunderland last campaign. 

That was his best total for a single season, reaching 31 in all competitions, and he has already notched five league goals for Wigan this time around. 

His most recent outing was an FA Cup first-round tie with Solihull Moors earlier this month, in which the Latics came out 2-1 winners.
