Liverpool Make Leeds Star Jack Clarke a Summer Target After Scouting Mission

Leeds' Jack Clarke taken to hospital after collapsing during Boro clash

Jack Clarke was undergoing tests in a Teesside hospital after the young Leeds winger collapsed as he watched the second half of his side's 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough from the bench.

There was a lengthy delay after the 18-year-old, who was substituted at half-time, was taken ill in the dugout and then stretchered off while given oxygen.

James Milner might have one good season left in him and Klopp thinks that if he can get Jack Clarke in exchange for his midfielder then it will be a really good bargain.

Straight after the game head coach Marcelo Bielsa said there had been concerns about Clarke's health, but he had recovered by the time he reached the dressing room after receiving treatment from paramedics.

"But when he was taken to the dressing room he was better. He was taken to the hospital to see if everything is all right".

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis passed on his best wishes to Clarke when he addressed the media.

"What we know is that he didn't feel well". "All our thoughts go to the lad Clarke".

So far Clarke has played 15 games in the league - scoring two goals and providing two assists.

Clarke made his Leeds debut against Brentford in October and has gone on to make 17 appearances this season.
