Sami Khedira released from hospital


Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira has been released from hospital after suffering a head injury during the Copa del Rey match against Cornella.

The 27-year-old midfielder underwent medical observation overnight on Tuesday in Madrid after he collided with David Garcia in Los Blancos’ 5-0 win. A statement on the club’s official website said he had been given the all clear and had left hospital.

It read: “Following neurological exams performed on Sami Khedira today in the Sanitas La Moraleja hospital, the player has been discharged.”

There was no indication if Khedira would be on the sidelines any longer and if so, how long for.

The German World Cup winner has just seven months left on his current deal at the Santiago Bernabeu and has been linked with a free transfer to a host of clubs across Europe. FA Cup holders Arsenal are the favourites for his signature, but his has also been linked with Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Manchester United and AC Milan.

The midfielder has had a frustrating time this season, having suffered a number of niggling injuries. His compatriot Toni Kross, who signed in the summer, has also kept him out of the side having formed a formidable partnership with Luka Modric.
