Leeds United have been hit with a blow in their preparations to resume the season after an individual at the club tested positive, according to the Daily Mail.
The EFL confirmed on Wednesday that nine cases at six separate clubs had been recorded with Sheffield Wednesday, Huddersfield and Preston confirming they had one a piece.
It is understood that at least one individual at Leeds has tested positive for COVID-19 and they must now self-isolate for the next seven days.
It is the first time that someone associated with Leeds has been affected by the disease, which brought the Championship season to a halt in March with the Whites top of the table and seven points clear of third-place with nine games to play.
Leeds have their own on-site testing machine for players and staff members to use but the club is yet to comment and the Mail’s report is the only thing saying about this positive test at this stage.
We hope that whoever has tested positive for coronavirus is able to make a full recovery and we also hope that they did not come into contact with anyone else at Leeds.
The last thing we want right now is a major break out at Thorp Arch which throws Bielsa’s plans into disarray.
