Van Aanholt: I am fit


Patrick van Aanholt has played down concerns over his health.

The Netherlands international was named in the Sunderland team to face Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday only to be withdrawn shortly before kick-off.

Manager David Moyes revealed on Tuesday that the player was withdrawn on the advice of cardiologists after the defender had undergone routine tests, but he insists he is fit and healthy.

"I was indeed surprised, because there is really nothing to worry about," he told Voetbal International.

"I've been sick last week. I picked up a virus and that would have crept in my body, possibly even to my heart.

"We had to make a scan, but the scan is offered late or too late at the FA and therefore I had to sit in the stand.

"I felt nothing in my heart. I'm just fit."
