In the 72nd minute of the game at Lindenstadion in Hippach, the 20-year-old midfielder lay down on his back inside the Bremen half in clear discomfort.

Ambulances and paramedics then tended to Nouri on the pitch, with a screen drawn around him.

"Emergency services are still [treating] Nouri, players look worried," Ajax tweeted. "It is serious, we [will let you] know immediately if there is more clarity."

A trauma helicopter then landed on the ground to assist the medics treating Nouri and fans were asked to leave the stadium with the match abandoned.

Shortly after Nouri arrived in hospital, Ajax sent a further update affirming that the youngster's state had improved.

"[Nouri] has a heart arrythmia. He is in a stable condition, he has a heartbeat and is sleeping," the club's official Twitter feed informed.

"Nouri has now been taken to hospital. Thank you for all your messages of support."
