Crocked West Ham defender Potts cleared to leave hospital

West Ham United defender Dan Potts has been given permission to return home in what is a positive piece of news for the player.

The 18-year old left-back required a stretcher to leave the pitch during the Hammers' 5-1 loss at Arsenal on Wednesday night because of a head injury sustained in a clash with Bacary Sagna.

Potts was knocked unconscious in the incident and underwent treatment and a series of scans in hospital but nothing serious was detected.

"We can confirm that Dan Potts has now left hospital and will be spending the next few days resting," read a West Ham statement.

"The young defender said: "A big thank you to everyone for their support and messages. Hopefully I am looking forward to feeling better over the next few days."

"There will be a period of rest for Potts before he is allowed to start light work back in the gym.

"West Ham would like to thank the London Ambulance Service, the on-site pitch rescue team and everyone at Arsenal who helped in making sure Potts was taken to hospital as quickly as possible."
