Ajax midfielder Abdelhak Nouri collapsed on Saturday during a friendly match against Werder Bremen in Austria.
The 20-year-old midfielder fell to the ground in the 70th minute and remained unconscious on the pitch, leading the postponement of the game.
Nouri, of Morrocan origin but a international at youth level for Holland, is said to be in a stable condition.
The Dutch club tweeted: "A trauma helicopter landed on the field. There was talk of heart rhythm disorders. He is stable."
Although initially Nouri's life was feared for, with his fainting recalling the cases of Antonio Puerta, Miklos Feher and Cameroon Marc-Vivien Foe, it seems that the player is now out of danger.
Nouri remains in hospital, Ajax have confirmed, as messages of support poured in for the youngster on social media.
