Nigerian players Alex Iwobi, Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho who play in the Premier League have been put in isolation over coronavirus fears.

The coronavirus has spread throughout the world as the Premier League is considering suspending the season.

Iwobi’s Everton have put their entire first-team squad including the Nigerian player into isolation after one player reported symptoms 'consistent with coronavirus'.

It is not known who the player is as Everton have also shut down their training facilities at Finch Farm as a precautionary measure.

Ndidi and Iheanacho are also in isolation after three players displayed symptoms consistent with the virus.
