Samuel Kalu has reportedly tested positive for the Coronavirus becoming the second Super Eagles star to test positive for the COVID-19 pandemic after Genk striker Paul Onuachu did.
Earlier today it was reported that the winger is still stranded in Nigeria due to travel ban caused by the Coronavirus Pandemic.
However, it has now emerged that the 22-year-old has been in quarantine at his home in France after he tested positive for Covid-19, according to AFP.
This has accounted for his absence at the pre-season camp of Ligue 1 side Bordeaux.
The Ligue 1 club had on July 6 announced that one of their players had tested positive for Coronavirus but did not reveal his identity.
Kalu is now expected to rejoin the rest of the squad on July 27 should he turn in a negative test.
