The incident saw 12 minutes of injury time added on, bringing the game to a standstill too.

The teenage midfielder was treated by paramedics on the visitor's bench and given oxygen before being stretchered to the dressing room after play was halted when he was taken unwell towards the end of Saturday's game at the Riverside Stadium.

Once there his condition improved and he was fully conscious, responsive and breathing normally when he was taken to hospital for further assessment, accompanied by members of the Leeds medical team.

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".
