Wigan defender Juan Carlos Garcia has been diagnosed with leukaemia, boss Malky Mackay has said.
The Championship club announced last week that the 26-year-old Honduras international had developed a blood disorder and was in hospital for treatment.
Signed by Wigan in 2013, Garcia recently returned from a loan spell with Tenerife in Spain.
Mackay said: "We've had some bad news as far as that's concerned -- he has a form of leukaemia. Juan Carlos is in the Christie Hospital in Manchester.
