Paramedics rushed to the scene to tend to the youngster, who was given oxygen and later taken to hospital for further testing.

Clarke was discharged from hospital later that evening, but is currently recuperating at home with the club looking to get to the bottom of what happened.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday night’s clash against Swansea, Bielsa said: “He is under observation.

“We are doing some more evaluation to see what happened and we all feel relieved.”

It remains unclear when Clarke will make a return to the Leeds team.

Chief executive Angus Kinnear gave an official update on his condition on Saturday saying: “[Jack] will undergo some more tests this week and everything is looking well, but he won’t train for the rest of the week.”
