Latics striker Charlie Wyke has taken to social media this evening to provide an update on his current situation.
The 28 year old has been absent since November after he collapsed at the clubs training ground Christopher Park. It is only down to the quick thinking of Leam Richardson and club doctor Jonathan Tobin that Wyke’s situation is growing increasingly positive.
In his latest update Charlie thanks Latics fans for their continued support saying “I am in a really good place both mentally and physically and I’m really positive about what the future holds.”
Wyke continued “As part of my testing, I have been back training with the lads in recent weeks while being monitored by the club’s medical staff and an independent cardiologist Dr Rob Cooper.”
In news that will only add to the positive atmosphere around the club at the minute Charlie confirmed his goals for the rest of this season, and when Latics fans can see him back on the pitch again.
“In the next couple of weeks I will undergo a planned medical procedure which requires a period of rest before I can restart training towards full fitness again. This does effectively rule out a return to me playing this season, though it keeps me on target to being fully fit to start pre-season with the squad.”
Latics fans instantly flooded the clubs social media pages with support for Charlie and I think I speak for all of us when I say I can’t wait to see him leading the line for us again. Hopefully, this will be sooner rather than later.
Best wishes Charlie, up the Tics 💙🤍
