LONDON (AP) - Premier League club doctors will discuss Fabrice Muamba's treatment and decide if heart screenings for soccer players need to be improved or done more often.

Muamba collapsed during Bolton's FA Cup match at Tottenham last month after cardiac arrest. Doctors still haven't discovered if he had a heart defect.

Doctors from the top-tier clubs will examine Muamba's medical records May 10 and assess his treatment from the moment he collapsed.

Manchester City head of sports medicine Dr. Philip Batty told The Associated Press it will be a "full debrief.''

The English Football Association's medical committee also will discuss Muamba's condition at a meeting May 3.
