Hamed was just 17 when he suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch during his debut for the club’s youth side against Belgians Cercle Bruges in August 2004.

His barrister, William Featherby QC, told the court that it took an Ambulance 16 minutes to reach him as onlookers attempted to resuscitate him.

The then teenager was rushed to hospital where he was revived, but sadly suffered catastrophic brain damage due to oxygen starvation.

Now 25, Hamed engaged legal action against the club as well as external consultant cardiologist, Dr Peter Mills, who checked him over before he signed on.

A statement released by the club read: “We can report that following discussions at court today, two of our former medical staff have accepted that they are solely responsible for their actions in 2005 in respect of allegations originally made against the Club.

“They will continue to defend their own position in court. The Club has been immensely supportive of Radwan and his family over the past 10 years and we wish them well for the future.”
