Tottenham Hotspur defender Vedran Corluka is expected to make a full recovery from a bad concussion he sustained against Stoke City.
A club spokesperson told inthenews.co.uk
the Croatian had been given the all-clear by hospital staff after a series of scans and X-rays on his head and neck, which revealed no major damage.
It is thought doctors believe he has sustained no more than a concussion after colliding with his own goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes twice in the space of a couple of minutes in the 2-1 defeat at the Britannia Stadium.
Corluka was treated on the field and given oxygen before being taken off on a stretcher with what appeared to be a bad injury.
He was taken straight to a local hospital where he was examined, but an overnight stay was not deemed necessary - suggesting he could be in contention to return in the crucial Premier League game against Bolton Wanderers on Sunday.
"He has regained consciousness and has had head and neck X-rays and everything appears to be okay," a Spurs spokesperson said.
At the time, there was a great deal of concern for Corluka's health as he stayed down for several minutes before being carried off.
His injury, plus a couple of other shorter stoppages led to 11 minutes of added time being played at the end of the second half - a Premier League record.© Adfero Ltd
