After his scheduled move to AC Milan was called off at the last minute in January, U.S. men's national team defender Antonee Robinson revealed on Thursday that his medical with the Italian club revealed an irregular heart rhythm that he will have a procedure to correct later this month.
Robinson announced through a statement issued by his club Wigan that it was the heart issue that canceled his move to the Italian club and that the further testing needed to complete the move would not have been completed by the transfer deadline. He has not played for Wigan since the move to Milan fell through but has trained with the team while he underwent a period of testing and treatment by Wigan's medical team.
The tests have revealed that Robinson will need to have an ablation to correct the issue. No timeline has been set for his return yet, but he is scheduled to have the procedure this month.
