The Norwich City player who tested positive for coronavirus in the last round of testing has now returned a negative sample, as revealed by the club’s sporting director.

Norwich confirmed the positive test on Saturday, after they had played a friendly against Tottenham the day before.

Stuart Webber told the Beautiful Game podcast that the player in question had now tested negative, and would undergo further tests.

Spurs said none of their players would need to isolate because they were not ‘close contact’ of the affected player.

The Government defines a close contact as someone who has been within two metres of an individual who has tested positive for more than 15 minutes.

The Premier League is set to restart on Wednesday evening, with Norwich returning to action against Southampton on Friday.
