Wigan Athletic defender Antonee Robinson has returned to training with the club after undergoing treatment for a heart rhythm irregularity, a problem which saw a move to AC Milan collapse.

The former Everton youngster was close to a switch to the Italian giants in January and even travelled to Milan to undergo a medical. However, the £6m deal collapsed due to the problem, seeing him return to Wigan and be ruled out of action.

Since then, further tests have been completed with members of the club’s medical staff, as well as doctors and he has now been cleared to return to training ahead of the Championship’s resumption following a three-month hiatus.

The defender, 22, only joined Wigan in the summer of 2019 in a £2m deal from top-flight Everton after initially playing for the club on loan. He impressed throughout the first-half of the campaign, playing 29 matches and scoring a solitary goal.

Alongside the heart problem that saw his move to Milan fall through, Robinson also suffered a groin injury which has now healed.

The seven-time capped American’s employers Wigan Atheltic currently sit 20th in the Championship table and will hope to drag themselves away from the relegation dogfight in the final nine matches of the campaign. The Latics are now at 5/1 with William Hill to be relegated.
