Former Salford Red Devils star Jansin Turgut is in a critical condition with 'very serious' head injuries after a fall at Ibiza airport.

The 23-year-old was taken to the Nuestra Senora del Rosario Clinic on the island at 3am on Monday morning.

Turgut remains in hospital in a serious condition following a three-storey fall at a car park at Ibiza airport.

The circumstances of the incident are being investigated.

"We can confirm it is him (Turgut) and he is in a very serious state in hospital.

"There is nothing more that we can say at the moment. We are looking into the incident and we are talking with his family."

Turgut had headed off on holiday to get away for a break following his release from Salford Red Devils earlier this month.The forward signed a short-term deal with Salford, but his contract was later terminated due to an "off-the-field" matter.

The player is a former England youth captain and Turkish international.
