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.

"And also a big thanks to everyone involved with James Cook hospital the staff have been brilliant!"

'The player is responsive and attending hospital with the club's head of medicine and performance.

Clarke has been ruled out of training for the duration of this week and will not feature in tomorrow's game against Swansea City.

The stoppage while Clarke received treatment in the dug-out led to a length period of injury-time in which Leeds scored to force a draw with 100 minutes on the clock.

Liverpool already have a fearsome attack but Klopp knows he needs to add more depth to the squad if they're to compete on all fronts next season and Clarke - who can play on either wing - would be a useful addition if he ended up at Anfield.

"I will say I hope Jack Clarke makes a speedy recovery, looked horrific what happened but fingers crossed he's okay", said a third supporter.

"All I heard was that he is OK and they're taking care of him, and that was the only thing I wanted to hear, and then I focused on the game". Then I wanted to focus on the game. "We don't know the reasons yet, but when he was taken to the dressing room he was feeling better".

Leeds chief executive Angus Kinnear told the club's official website: "Jack has had messages from football fans from every club you can imagine and we all really appreciate it".

"He's under observation", Bielsa said. "We all feel relieved".
