Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino says the club will do anything they can to help Aaron Lennon.
The 30-year-old Everton man spent 10 years at Tottenham, he is currently being treated for a stress-related illness.
In a statement Police in Manchester confirmed they had taken Lennon to Hospital: “Police were called at around 4.35pm on Sunday, April 30, 2017 to reports of a concern for the welfare of a man.
"Officers attended and a 30-year-old man was detained under Section 136 of the Mental Health Act and was taken to hospital for assessment.”
Before signing for Everton the Englishman made over 250 league appearances for Tottenham between 2005 and 2015.
Pochettino extended his thoughts to Lennon and his family and pledged to help him:
"We feel very sorry about the situation with Aaron, we wanted from here to send all our wishes that he recovers soon, him and his family."
"The club is in contact with his agent now, trying to see what we can do to help him.
"We all feel very sorry. He's a person that was here for nearly 10 years and Tottenham care a lot about his situation, the players, the staff, all the people are very concerned about his situation."
Everton boss Ronald Koeman believes footballers are under more strain than ever - and that's partly because of social media.
He says they'll do everything they can to help Aaron Lennon as the winger recovers from a stress-related illness.
Koeman hopes Lennon can get peace and privacy to recover:
"As you know the club mentioned that Aaron had a stress-related illness and it is a private situation.
"We try to give him all the support him to come back as soon as possible.
"We have contact with him and his family and I think it is best we keep it inside between club, the player and his family.
"We would like to see him back but what is important now is for him to be like he was. Life, health, is more important than football."
