Jack Clarke: Leeds United teenager taken to hospital after Middlesbrough draw

Ian Harte has revealed that Leeds United attacker Jack Clarke has now left hospital in Middlesbrough and is happy and smiling.

The Leeds winger complained that he felt unwell during the game and was replaced at half-time, before collapsing during the second half while on the substitutes' bench.

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

United managing director Angus Kinnear said: "Jack has had messages from football fans from every club, as you can imagine, and we all really appreciate it". After feeling bad he recovered and when he was taken to the dressing room he was better, as if he had overcome the problem. "He was taken back into the dressing room, where he seemed to have overcome the problem but he's gone to hospital now to see if everything is alright".

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.

The second-half incident at the Riverside Stadium caused a significant delay to play.

Boro had opened the scoring in the 47th minute, but Leeds' Kalvin Phillips rose to the occasion, scoring a late, late equaliser deep into added time to secure a point for the visitors.

The draw sends Bielsa's side a point clear of Norwich at the top though the Canaries can reclaim that position if they beat East Anglian rivals bottom-placed Ipswich Town on Sunday.
