Fleck collapsed and suffered a seizure in the side’s midweek win at Reading, prompting harrowing scenes in which he received emergency treatment for around 10 minutes. He was aided by an oxygen mask and was stretchered off before being taken to hospital.

Sheffield United released a statement confirming Fleck had been discharged from hospital earlier this week.
