TOTTENHAM have reportedly been hit with another case of Covid-19 at their North London training base.
A fresh case has been recorded among Tottenham's first-team squad, with a new outbreak also in the U23s.
According to the Telegraph the latest cases add to eight first-team players, nine staff members, and multiple U23s who returned positive tests last week.
An exact number of fresh cases isn't detailed, but the new outbreak among the U23s is said to be 'large,' with a case also in the first team.
Positive cases at the club forced scheduled clashes with Rennes last Thursday and Brighton on Sunday to be called off.
A number of recovered and negative players had returned to the club on Sunday for restricted training sessions.
And boss Antonio Conte was scheduled to hold another session today.
But reports suggest he could have just 13 players, including two goalkeepers, in training ahead of Thursday's game against Leicester.
