Barcelona have revealed striker David Villa has been taken to a hospital because of kidney stones.

The club said the 31-year-old Spain forward would be "subjected to appropriate treatment to eliminate the kidney stones" in the next few hours.

The club said in a statement on Monday that Villa is doubtful for Saturday's league game at Granada.
