Everton winger Aaron Lennon has been detained under the Mental Health Act – and Tottenham fans on Twitter have wished their former player a speedy recovery.

BBC Sports reported on Tuesday evening that the 30-year-old was detained by police over concerns for his welfare.

It is said that Lennon was taken to hospital “for assessments” after police were called to Salford on Sunday.

Lennon has not played a Premier League game since his side’s goalless draw against Middlesbrough in February when he came off the substitutes bench.

He last appeared in Ronald Koeman’s matchday squad in mid-March when his team beat Hull City 4-0 on home soil.
