Morgan Gibbs-White sanction kept in-house

Flout of order:
Gibbs-White was
filmed at a lockdown
party in London

ENGLAND Under-21 international Morgan Gibbs-White is in hot water with his club Wolves for breaking lockdown rules.

The 20-year-old was filmed at a Bank Holiday party in London also attended by two Love Island contestants in contrast to an earlier social media post in which he had urged people to stay at home to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The Snapchat video has now been deleted and Wolves say they are treating his trip to the capital as an internal matter.

He is not the only Premier League player to breach the lockdown rules, with Moise Kean facing punishment from Everton for hosting a party at his flat and Manchester City’s Kyle Walker having reportedly hosted a party involving two sex workers.

■ WOLVES’ Compton training ground has become the first in the Premier League to install a drive-through coronavirus testing station. Manager Nuno Espirito Santo and his players returned to training for individual sessions last week but it is believed Wolves’ squad are yet to use the new testing procedure. Backroom staff have been tested. It is expected to become the template for other top-flight clubs. Testing is carried out in the car park and takes less than a minute. The new testing station is part of a £4million agreement between the Premier League and Hong Kong-based genetic testing company Prenetics. If training resumes before social distancing rules are relaxed, it is understood players will be tested for coronavirus twice a week and screened for symptoms daily at a cost of about £30,000 a week.
