Antonee Robinson Reveals Heart Rhythm Irregularity Stopped Move To AC Milan

Antonee Robinson Reveals Heart Rhythm Irregularity Stopped Move To AC Milan

Antonee Robinson's move to AC Milan looked like it was going to be the surprise transfer of January until it was cancelled very late because of a medical condition.

The move needed Robinson to have further testing but with time running out in the transfer window, which closed a few hours earlier in Italy than England, it wasn't possible to do them.

Robinson hasn't appeared for Wigan since and in a statement on Thursday revealed it's because of an irregular heart rhythm, saying, "I wanted to update our supporters on my current situation as I have had a number of people asking if I am OK and why I have not played since January.

"During my medical for a potential transfer to AC Milan on deadline day, an irregularity was picked up in my heart rhythm.

"Further testing was required to ensure the move could be finalised and ratified, though there was not enough time to complete this before the transfer deadline.

"Since my return to Wigan, I have been training with the team whilst being monitored and I have undergone a period of testing and treatment. I feel absolutely fine but this is obviously an issue that needs sorting before I can play again.

"Following consultation with the club's medical staff and independent specialists, it has been decided I will need a medical procedure later this month to address the irregularity in my heart rhythm - a procedure called an ablation.

"I would like to thank everyone at Wigan Athletic for their support during this period, especially the club's medical staff.

"Thank you for your support and I hope to be back on the pitch at the DW sooner rather than later."

The 22-year-old, who has won seven international caps for the USA, looked to be heading for the San Siro in a £6 million move, after both teams agreed the move.

But Robinson's failed fitness test put an end to what would have been his dream move from the Championship to Serie A and the Rossoneri had to recall Diego Laxalt from his loan at Torino instead.

Hopefully the former Everton youngster's medical procedures go well and he can get himself back in form to a point where AC Milan want him again.
