Leeds’ Jack Clarke taken to hospital after collapsing in dugout during game

According to the same story, 18-year-old Leeds United starlet is now on Klopp's radar as a potential recruit for the summer window.

Pontus Jansson and Marcelo Bielsa have spoken of their relief with Jack Clarke on the mend after collapsing during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough.

Clarke, who had been substituted at half-time, complained of feeling unwell in the dugout and was then carried away on a stretcher while being given oxygen.

Leeds - who have had a poor run of late losing four of their last six matches coming into Saturday's game - should have levelled in the 71st minute.

Leeds boss Bielsa told reporters that Clarke seemed to be in better condition before leaving the Riverside Stadium but does not know why he fell ill.

He was later taken to hospital before being released on Sunday. Today, Liverpool join the race for Jack Clarke....

Jack Clarke has come up through the ranks at Leeds and this season the winger has grabbed a lot of eyeballs with his fine performances in the Championship.

The 18-year-old is a product of the Leeds' academy and has been making the right waves in the English second division, in what is his debut campaign.

Leeds went on to score a last-gasp equaliser in the 12th-minute of stoppage time to earn a point and return to the top of the Championship.

Marcelo Bielsa's side are now second in the table, trailing Norwich City by two points.

They also extended their hold on an automatic promotion place over third-placed Sheffield United back to three points, matching the Blades' 3-3 draw with Aston Villa on Friday.
