Bolton's Muamba to leave London hospital this week

Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba is set to be released from his London hospital.

The Daily Mail says Muamba is expected to return north this week for the first time since he suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch at Tottenham last month with Bolton increasingly hopeful that he will make a Premier League comeback in the future.

They remain cautious because the 24-year-old midfielder is still in stable condition in intensive care at the London Chest Hospital, and there are several medical issues still to be resolved before they can be sure about the long-term outlook.

But crucially Muamba's heart and other major organs appear to be healthy, and he has recovered sufficiently for doctors to consider transferring him to a high-dependency in the north-west towards the end of the week.
