Club Brugge has announced that Nigeria international, David Okereke, has tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday.
The Belgian club made this known on their website.
“Attacker David Okereke took a positive Corona test this (Tuesday) morning,” a statement on the club’s website said.
“The attacker was immediately quarantined and will be retested next week.”
The 23-year-old will therefore miss Sunday’s Belgian Pro League matchday 6 fixture against Zulte-Waregem at the Regenboogstadion.
Okereke became the third high-profile Nigeria player to test positive for COVID-19 after Paul Onuachu of Genk and Samuel Kalu of Ligue 1 club Bordeaux also tested positive for the virus.
Both Onuachu and Kalu already recovered.
Okereke has made four appearances so far this season and opened his goals account last weekend in the club’s 4-1 win over Waasland-Beveren.
