uper Eagles forward Samuel Kalu who plays for Ligue 1 side Bordeaux has tested positive for coronavirus and has been in quarantine.

Kalu was subjected to a coronavirus test when he arrived in Bordeaux from Nigeria and was found to have contracted the virus.

Bordeaux had announced that one of their players had tested positive for the virus without mentioning the person but a report by AFP revealed that the player is Kalu.

The 22-year-old has been in quarantine and has missed Bordeaux’s training sessions since pre-season resumed.

The Nigeria international is expected to rejoin the rest of the squad on Monday, July 27, 2020 should he turn in a negative test.

Kalu spent most of his time in Nigeria after he was permitted by his club to travel following the suspension of Ligue 1 in France.

He is now the second Nigerian player who contracted the coronavirus after a trip to Nigeria.

Super Eagles striker Paul Onuachu tested positive for coronavirus on return to pre-season with Genk but has now recovered.
