Norwich City have confirmed one of their players has tested positive for coronavirus.
The player is one of two people to test positive for the virus from 1,200 tests in the latest round of Premier League testing.
In total, there has now been 16 positive results across the league from 8,687 tests.
The Canaries haven’t revealed who the player is, but they did confirm that he will now have to self-isolate for seven days.
That means he will probably miss Norwich’s first game back against Southampton on Friday night.
The player will also have to return a negative test before he can resume training again.
“Norwich City can confirm that one of its players has returned a positive test result following the recent round of COVID-19 testing,” a Norwich City statement read.
“In line with the Premier League’s protocols, the player will now self-isolate for a period of seven days before being tested again at a later date. The player must return a negative test result before being able to resume training.
“The club will not name the player in question and asks that his request for privacy and confidentiality are respected at this time.”
