Roy Hodgson has revealed West Brom went "into overdrive" when they discovered striker Shane Long had a heart problem.

The 25-year-old was reportedly diagnosed with pericarditis, an inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart, brought on by an infection.

Hodgson was quoted by the Daily Mirror as saying: "Anytime anything affects the heart region it's a concern of course, we don't take any injury or sickness lightly."
