Torquay United midfielder Aman Verma is undergoing tests after collapsing at home after a training session.

The 27-year-old was sick during a gym session last week and was taken ill again later in the evening.

Torquay manager Kevin Nicholson said they didn't want to take any chances so opted for testing.

He's very worried because he thought it was an off day, and it might just be a virus that has hit him hard. But with all that's gone on lately in football with things like heart problems we couldn't take any chances.

It started with headaches, which led to Verma collapsing. The manager says it's hoped the results will come through on Monday, but does mean the midfielder will have to miss Torquay's game with Chester on Saturday.

He's feeling fine now but the doctors have told him to do pretty much nothing, so he's bored out of his mind as he just has to rest until he's given the all-clear.

Verma joined Torquay on loan from Kidderminster last November and the deal has since been extended until the end of the season.
