There have been no positive tests for coronavirus after the fourth round of Premier League testing.
The latest batch of tests, which were conducted on Thursday and Friday this week, are the first to take place since clubs unanimously agreed a return to contact training.
A total of 12 people tested positive from over 2,700 tests conducted in the first three rounds.
For the fourth round of testing, the number of tests available to each club increased from 50 to 60.
The Premier League has set a provisional date of return for June 17, provided all safety tests are cleared.
In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports News on Friday, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said test results from the first three rounds had been “reassuring” and the number of positive cases were at an anticipated level.
