Arsenal's training ground to undergo DEEP CLEAN after 'a number of Covid cases'

Arsenal have reportedly had a number of positive Covid-19 cases that will trigger a deep clean of their London Colney base.

The Athletic report that the outbreak concerns the Under-18s as well as the Under-23s.

As a result of the positive tests the Under-23's game against Bournemouth Under-21s on July 17 as well as their trip to play Welling United on July 20 have been cancelled.

Matches against Bromley and Boreham Wood have also been postponed following the reported tests.

It is important to stress that the reported outbreak does not concern the men's or women's first team.

Mikel Arteta's side travelled north to Scotland for a pre-season training camp on Monday and Jonas Eidevall's women's team have avoided any contamination.

'All these positives were transmitted off site and the players are well. However, to protect our players and opponents, two friendly matches for the U23s and U18s have been cancelled,' an Arsenal statement, provided by the Athletic, said.

'Our London Colney training ground has undergone extensive work to help ensure there is no cross-contamination between our various football bubbles.

'The men's first-team squad are unaffected as they are currently in Scotland. The women's first-team squad also continue to train as normal.'
