Sun journalist Alan Nixon has claimed that a ‘top club’ in the Championship has seen three young players test positive in the latest round of Coronavirus testing.
That comes after the EFL announced that nine players from six clubs had tested positive from a total of 1,094 players and staff.
There’s one top club with three young players. I take it they are among the nine talked about. Unusual one. https://t.co/9hbtCrLpQW

So far, we’ve not had confirmation for any of the other positive tests. Two Fulham players had tested positive in the previous round of testing.
With a restart date of June 20, these test results are starting to get very important.
It’s highly likely that any players testing positive from this point on will miss the start of the season.
Plus, as contact training has started, it’s possible that other players could be forced to self-isolate too if it’s found that they’ve had any prolonged contact with infected individuals.
Leeds United and West Brom had both recorded no positive tests up to the latest round of results on Wednesday night and we hope that as today progresses, that news stays the same.
The news of the June 20 restart is brilliant for Leeds, who are desperate to get their promotion bid back on.
However, this just shows that the next two weeks are going to be nervy ones for fans of any club.
