Burnley midfielder Jack Cork has been discharged from hospital after complaining of palpitations while on international duty.
Cork, who is on loan at Turf Moor from Chelsea, spent Monday night in hospital following England Under 21s' friendly defeat at the hands of Iceland.
The 21-year-old complained of the problem during the first half of the 2-1 defeat at Deepdale and was replaced at the interval by Tom Cleverley.
However, after undergoing tests overnight he has since been discharged and England Under 21 coach Stuart Pearce explained he had been taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.
Meanwhile, Clarets midfielder Chris McCann is delighted to be playing again after an 18-month injury nightmare.
The Irishman played 37 minutes as a second-half substitute in the reserves' home defeat to Oldham on Tuesday night.
The run-out was McCann's first appearance since undergoing surgery last summer, following the recurrence of a knee injury sustained during the Clarets' summer tour of Singapore.
He said: "It has been a long road, but it was just nice to get on there in the second half and have a kickaround.
"I felt it towards the end, so my fitness needs a little top up, but it's really good to be back.
"I needed to go into a few tackles for my own peace of mind and I obviously needed to be tackled a couple of times too to make me more confident. Hopefully now I can roll onto next week and see more of the same."
