Republic of Ireland international Shane Duffy has left intensive care as he continues his recovery from life-saving surgery.

The 18-year-old Everton player lost two-thirds of his blood supply after rupturing his hepatic artery during a training game on Friday.

However, he was moved from the intensive care unit at Dublin's Mater Hospital to the high-dependency unit on Sunday.
