David Moyes has said Sunderland will clarify Patrick van Aanholt’s fitness situation in the next few days.
The 26-year-old left-back played the full game at Loftus Road in the EFL Cup win over QPR on Wednesday after being pulled out of their Premier League game against Tottenham at the weekend due to medical advice.
Reports suggested Van Aanholt has some sort of heart condition but the player himself insists he is fit and he missed the game with Spurs merely as a precaution.
Moyes said: “The club will say something more about it in the next day or so but all I will say is that the decision was made in the best interests of
him and we will try and make sure things are a bit clearer in the next few days.”
