With the UK Government opening the door for over the porential resumumption of Premier League next month, top flight clubs could soon begin full training to get their players ready for the restart (BBC).
Jose Mourinho could have a fully fit squad to work with for the first time since arriving at the club back in November with the extended break having given the likes of Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko and Steven Bergwijn time to regain their fitness.
The Evening Standard previously reported that Son Heung-min could miss the return to training due to the UK Government’s rules on people arriving from abroad.
The report claimed that the forward, who has just returned to the UK after completing his three-week national service in South Korea, would be required to quarantine himself for 14 days after his return to the country.
However, PA Sport journalist Jonathan Veal has now revealed that the 27-year-old will not have to spend two weeks in quarantine unless he tests positive for COVID-19.
If the forward is free of the voirus, he will be allowed to resume training at Hotspur Way as part of the club’s individual sessions at the training base, where COVID-19 testing has been set up (Spurs official).
Son Heung-min has travelled back to London after completing his military service last week. Understand he will not have to quarantine for two weeks unless he tests positive for coronavirus as per government advice, so free to resume training #THFC #COYS

Spurs Web Opinion
Given that we now supposedly have 100 per cent accurate antibody testing, it makes no sense to quarantine Son if he tests negative for the virus. Thankfully, it looks like common sense will prevail and the forward will be allowed to resume training.
