The 20-year-old is in stable condition and has full respiratory function after suffering a heart arrhythmia during a friendly against Werder Bremen

Abdelhak Nouri has been taken out of intensive care and put into medium care, his family revealed via Ajax.

The 20-year-old suffered a heart arrhythmia during a friendly against Werder Bremen in Austria and was put into an induced coma after being resuscitated on the field.

The midfielder is now breathing on his own, but his situation is largely unchanged since he was diagnosed with severe and permanent brain damage.

Nouri, a member of Ajax's youth system since the age of seven, has received a great deal of support from the club's fans and beyond.

After fans gathered outside his home to welcome his family back from the hospital, Kevin-Prince Boateng vowed to wear a shirt with his name all season.

Furthermore, Ajax revealed the shirt number 34 will still be assigned to him next season.
