West Ham youngster Martin Sameulsen has returned to the club for tests after picking up a mystery illness.

The 20-year-old, who is spending the rest of season on loan with Burton Albion has been sent back to West Ham for tests after pulling out of The Brewers' last two fixtures and withdrawing from the Norwegian under 21 squad.

"He hasn't gone (with Norway's under-21s)," said Albion boss Nigel Clough. "He still doesn't feel right. He's gone back down to West Ham to have some tests, and then we'll know a bit more later in the week.

"We're not sure [exactly what the problem is] - he just hasn't felt right. He came in after one game and he came on against Bristol City and he didn't feel well after the game. So there's obviously something not quite right with him at the moment.

"He's had a few viruses in the past that have really knocked him sideways. At the start of the season he had a big throat infection which ended up in him having an operation. He also had his tonsils out, so it could be a recurrence of something like that."

Samuelsen joined Albion on loan back in mid-January, since when he had appeared on eight occasions for Clough and the Brewers.
