​Newcastle recall Barlaser from Rotherham spell

Rotherham manager Paul Warne has confirmed that two of his players, Lewis Price and Freddie Lapado, are in self isolation.

The duo are suffering from coronavirus symptoms, but have not received testing confirmation if they are positive or negative.

Newcastle United have also recalled keeper Dan Barlaser from his loan at the club.

He will now self isolate, along with many others in the Rotherham squad.

"Lewis Price's brother has got coronavirus and he has had some time with him," Warne told reporters.

"He didn't know at the time. He has got symptoms, so he is now self-isolating for two weeks.

"Last Friday before we got the news the game was off, Freddie had a fever which is obviously a sign. He is self-isolating for a week. We won't see him now for a bit.

"Dan Barlaser got called back to Newcastle, they didn't want him to train, they wanted him to self-isolate. So that is out of my hands as well. That is the only concern for us so far."
