All players from the Premier League have been tested for coronavirus over the last few days with the results to be revealed later today.

The likes of Roberto Firmino, Andy Robertson, James Milner and Adam Lallana were all spotted driving into Melwood as a return to Premier League football edges closer.

Germany's top-flight got back underway over the weekend with matches played behind-closed-doors.

And the Premier League are hoping to restart next month, with June 19 touted as a possible date for the campaign to resume.

Players will be allowed to train in groups of no more than five people starting tomorrow after clubs voted to approve a formal return to the training ground.

NO TRAIN, NO GAIN

The agreement to move to "Stage One" of the training protocols will see all 20 top flight squads beginning basic work from tomorrow.

In a "shareholder" meeting of all 20 teams, clubs discussed a number of other issues, including their desire to play all the remaining 92 games this season in home stadiums rather than at neutral venues.

A statement from the League said: "Premier League Shareholders today voted unanimously to return to small group training from tomorrow afternoon – the first step towards restarting the Premier League, when safe to do so.

"Step One of the Return to Training Protocol enables squads to train while maintaining social distancing. Contact training is not yet permitted.

"This first stage has been agreed in consultation with players, managers, Premier League club doctors, independent experts and the Government.

"Strict medical protocols of the highest standard will ensure everyone returns to training in the safest environment possible.

"The health and wellbeing of all participants is the Premier League's priority, and the safe return to training is a step-by-step process.

"Full consultation will now continue with players, managers, clubs, the PFA and LMA as protocols for full-contact training are developed."
