Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has reportedly tested positive for coronavirus just days after his club announced an unnamed player had contracted Covid-19.
The 22-year-old told The Sun that he was asymptomatic and had returned to a negative test on May 18 before testing positive on Friday.
There were two positive tests from the latest round of Covid-19 testing among Premier League players and staff, with the other positive result coming from a different club.
It follows an earlier round of testing where six people were shown to have the virus, including Watford defender Adrian Mariappa and Burnley assistant manager Ian Woan.
Ramsdale, who’s become the Cherries’ first choice goalkeeper this season, told The Sun he had believed he had caught the virus at the supermarket.
“It’s definitely a shock.
“I’ve not been in contact with anybody and now I’ve got it.
“I’m showing no symptoms so the fact that healthy young person could potentially have it is definitely scary and worrying.”
