'As a Club, we would like to place on record our sincere appreciation to all of the staff within the NHS who, within what we know are challenging times, were excellent in their response and subsequent care for Charlie, working together with our medical team.

'Clearly this news will cause alarm, though we would politely request that the privacy of Charlie and his family is respected. At the appropriate time, we will look to provide further updates to our supporters.'

Wyke played no part in Tuesday's 2-2 draw with Cambridge United as Wigan cited illness for his absence. 

The former Sunderland striker's last appearance for Wigan came in the FA Cup on November 16 against non-league side Solihull Moors.  

Details and understanding as to why Wyke collapsed during a training session have not been revealed by the club as the striker is now being monitored by Wigan's medical staff and an independent consultant.

The increase in the number of players collapsing during matches and at training is of grave concern to clubs across the world.
