    Burnley assistant manager Ian Woan has tested positive for coronavirus, the Premier League club has confirmed.

    The Clarets’ first-team squad and staff were all tested for Covid-19 at the weekend, before a return to training.

    Burnley say former midfielder Woan, 52, is “asymptomatic” and will now self-isolate for seven days.

    There were six positive tests across three Premier League clubs on Sunday and Monday, as the English top flight prepares to resume in June.

    A total of 748 players and staff from 19 clubs were tested. Norwich City did their tests on Tuesday so will be included in Saturday’s results.

    Squads started non-contact training from Tuesday.
