Ryan Sessegnon has been forced to withdraw from international duty after a COVID-19 outbreak at Hoffenheim, according to The Telegraph.

The 20-year-old had been called up duty with the England Under-21 side and reported for duty at St George’s Park earlier this week and underwent a test where his result was negative.

Despite testing negative, the Bundesliga outfit have insisted that the left-footer returns to Germany to go into quarantine after the club suffered seven cases of coronavirus.

Sessegnon was due to be part of the squad to face Andorra on Friday and Albania on Tuesday but Adie Boothroyd will now be unable to utilise the Spurs man for the double header which will take place at Molineux.

Hoffenheim have seen two members of the coaching staff test positive along with Sebastian Rudy, Ishak Belfodil, Munas Dabbur, Robert Skov and Jacob Bruun Larsen.

Sessegnon has made six appearances for Hoffenheim since making the move in the summer on a season-long loan deal (transfermarkt).
