Which Premier League players have coronavirus?

The Premier League confirmed on Tuesday that six players and staff from three different clubs had tested positive for coronavirus.

A total of 748 players and staff from 19 clubs had been tested at the time before Norwich City did their tests on Tuesday.

The Premier League did not name any specific details on the individuals but that those affected would be self-isolating for a period of seven days.

It has since been revealed that Burnley assistant manager and former Premier League midfielder Ian Woan was one of the half dozen who tested positive.

Woan spent a decade with Nottingham Forest, including all five seasons they have ever played in the Premier League.

On Wednesday, Watford centre-back Adrian Mariappa then confirmed he was one of the six to test positive. The Jamaican international had played 15 of Watford’s 29 Premier League matches before the season was suspended on 13 March.

In the same article in the Telegraph, it was confirmed that two members of staff at Watford have also caught the virus and will be self-isolating.

The third club and two other people involved in the Premier League who tested positive have not yet been revealed.

It was agreed at a video conference on Monday that small group training sessions could take place starting this week after the league had been suspended for two months.

The plan is to get the 2019-20 Premier League season completed. Germany are leading the way in getting football restarted after their Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga divisions returned last weekend and are scheduled to be completed at the end of June.
