Newcastle United players will resume training at the club's training centre on Tuesday, a week after it was closed because several players and staff tested positive for COVID-19.
AllNews reported earlier that the postponement of the Newcastle vs Aston Villa match was the first English Premier League fixture to suffer cancellation due to COVID-19.
The rising number of positive cases forced Newcastle to lodge a request to postpone last Friday's league match at Aston Villa which was approved by the Premier League Board.

"Newcastle United's players will train at the training center today following a temporary closure last week due to a rise in Covid-19 cases," the club said in a statement.
"Those who had tested positive will follow relevant protocols before returning."
The match at Villa was the first Premier League fixture postponed because of COVID-19 since last season resumed in June.
