Lennon was detained “under section 136 of the Mental Health Act and was taken to hospital for assessment.”

From the BBC:

Lennon is now “receiving care and treatment for a stress-related illness”, his club has said.

All our best to the 30-year-old Toffee during a challenging time. Lennon has only played 17 minutes since January 2, with only three bench appearances in addition to that short stint versus Middlesbrough on March 18.
