“One Aaron Lennon” – Tottenham fans flood the internet with messages of support for the troubled England star (Tweets)

Everton winger Aaron Lennon was detained by the police under provisions of the Mental Health Act for what his club called a stress-related illness on Sunday.

The player, who last played for his side in a goalless draw against Middlesbrough in February, was taken to a hospital for assessment in Salford over concerns of his welfare.

Lennon joined the Toffees from Tottenham in a deal worth £4 million in 2015 and has been an important part of Ronald Koeman’s side ever since.

Lennon became the youngest footballer to play in the Premier League during a 2-1 loss to Tottenham in 2003, after which he joined the club from Leeds two years later for £1 million.

Lennon’s long association of over 360 appearances in a Tottenham shirt prompted the club’s official Twitter handle showing solidarity with the player.

Not only that, Lennon also found support from many Spurs fans, who remembered the player in a series of tweets that can be seen below.
