RB Leipzig midfield maestro Naby Keita has been discharged from hospital after suffering a circulatory collapse.

The Guinea international gave Leipzig a scare following the 1-0 loss to VfL Wolfsburg in the German Bundesliga game on Saturday.

Leipzig head coach Ralph Hasenhüttl has since provided a short update on the reported Arsenal and Liverpool FC target's condition.

"Naby is already feeling better. He did a lot of running in the game yesterday, which may be the reason for what happened," Hasenhüttl told

The 22-year-old played the entire game against Wolfsburg and he was booked 33 minutes into the encounter at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig.

This was his fifth yellow card of the season and he will therefore be suspended for the trip to SV Werder Bremen this Saturday.

Keita, who has played 22 league games this season, could be back for Leipzig when they welcome Darmstadt 98 on Saturday, 01 April 2017.
