Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina collapses with head injury during Napoli game

Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina was taken to hospital after collapsing midway through his loan club Napoli's Serie A match against Udinese on Sunday.

After being loaded first on to a buggy and then into a waiting ambulance, he was immediately taken to hospital.

At the beginning of the game, Ospina collided with Udinese's Argentine footballer Ignacio Pussetto, but he continued playing.

The latest update per Football Italia is positive.

Medical staff rushed to attend to him and he was soon stretchered from the San Paolo Stadium's field.

Ospina joined the Italian club last August from Arsenal on a one-year loan with an option to buy.

He is likely to remain at Napoli, who have a £4million clause agreed to make the purchase this summer.

The Colombia stopper went to hospital directly from the ground, but Ancelotti calmed fears of serious injury speaking after the match, saying: "He's fine, he's aware and conscious".

"Ospina will remain at Napoli next season, regardless of how many games he plays".

The second-placed side scored twice in the second half to eventually beat Udinese 4-2.

Ancelotti's side were pegged back after taking a two-goal lead in the first half, but pulled away after the break to reduce Juventus's lead at the top of Serie A to 15 points.

Ospina will be eligible to face the Gunners in the Europa League after they were drawn together for the quarter-finals earlier this week.
