Bournemouth has announced one of their players has tested positive.
The Cherries confirmed the player has contracted the virus after the latest round of tests for top-flight clubs.
The Premier League announced on Saturday that there were two positive tests at two clubs from 996 tests conducted on Thursday and Friday.
A Bournemouth statement read: “AFC Bournemouth can confirm that one of its players has tested positive for Covid-19, following the club’s second round of testing.
“Medical confidentiality means the player’s name will not be disclosed, and the club asks for this to be respected.
“In line with Premier League protocols regarding positive tests, he will self-isolate for a period of seven days before being tested again at a later date.
“Following strict adherence of the Premier League’s return to training regulations, the club’s training ground remains a safe working environment for players and backroom staff, who will continue to be tested for Covid-19 twice per week.”
The unnamed Bournemouth player, and the other positive test, will now self-isolate for seven days.
