Wigan Athletic star ‘stable’ following training ground incident

Wigan Athletic striker Charlie Wyke is in a ‘stable condition’ after he collapsed in training earlier this week.

Wyke missed The Latics mid-week clash against Cambridge United through illness as his side were held to a 2-2 draw. 

Now, the club have released a statement stating that Wyke had to receive medical treatment after an incident occurred in preparation for the match. 

Wyke was initially rushed to hospital, however is now said to be in a stable condition. 

The 28-year-old will remain in hospital so that he can be monitored by staff. 

The forward has made 15 league appearances already for the Greater Manchester club this season, scoring five times during that spell. 

But fans may have to wait a while before they see their man back in action, as it was revealed he will not be available for selection in the immediate future. 

A club statement read: “Charlie is in a stable condition and in communication with his family, hospital staff and the club’s medical team.” 

Wigan Chief Executive, Mal Brannigan, added: “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.”
