NEWS UPDATE: Arsenal forward, Saka leaves England camp

Bukayo Saka has left the England camp after testing positive for COVID-19.

Saka trained with his international teammates on Tuesday, but had been isolated from the rest of the squad since Wednesday.

The Arsenal youngster has now returned home.

He tweeted: “I am gutted to withdraw from @England camp but I have tested positive for COVID-19 and I will be isolating until I am negative.

“I’ll be supporting the boys from home this weekend and I can’t wait to be back doing what I love soon.”

England manager, Gareth Southgate, who has seen a few withdrawals from his initial 25-man squad, will not call up a replacement for Saka.

Saka is the sixth player to withdraw from the squad after Trent Alexander-Arnold, Reece James, Tammy Abraham and Aaron Ramsdale.

Gunner boss, Mikel Arteta, will be hoping to have the 20-year-old fit and available for their difficult trip to Crystal Palace after the international break.

Saka scored the only goal as Arsenal beat Aston Villa 1-0, before joining up with the Three Lions.
