A Norwich City player is one of two people to test positive for coronavirus from the latest round of 1,200 Premier League tests.

Testing took place on Thursday and Friday, with the unnamed player involved as Norwich beat Spurs 2-1 in a friendly at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, also on Friday.

Spurs confirmed they have no positive tests and said the Canaries player had "no close contacts" with their team.

He will self-isolate for seven days.

The Premier League, suspended since 13 March, is set to resume behind closed doors on 17 June when Aston Villa host Sheffield United at 18:00 BST, with Manchester City v Arsenal at 20:15.

The Canaries - six points from Premier League safety - host 14th place Southampton on Friday, 19 June at 18:00 in their first fixture of the restarted campaign. The player who tested positive for Covid-19 will miss that match.

There have now been 16 positive results from 8,687 tests in total.

A Spurs statement on Saturday said the club was following the government's definition of "close contact" as being within two metres of a confirmed case for 15 minutes or more.

The club added: "The Norwich player in question has confirmed he had no 'close contacts' with our team yesterday and our squad has also verified this."
