There has been a huge scare for Wigan Athletic today as star striker Charlie Wyke has been hospitalised.

The Latics have today confirmed that the 28-year-old collapsed in training on Monday in the lead-up to the club’s match with Cambridge United in which he was a notable absentee.

Wyke has been in hospital ever since but he remains in a stable condition and is able to communicate with his family and hospital staff, Wigan have also revealed.

Emirates Stadium?

The striker made the move to the DW Stadium from fellow League One side Sunderland in the summer, turning down a host of other clubs to join Leam Richardson’s side after scoring 26 league goals last season.

His record stands at five goals in 15 appearances for the north west side in this campaign but it is unknown as to how long it will take Wyke to recover from this shock setback.

Wigan chief Mal Brannigan has praised the NHS in the aftermath of Wyke’s collapse and the fans have rallied around to offer their support to their number nine.
