Boost for Premier League sides as Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay taken off UK’s red list

A number of Premier League clubs have been boosted, with their South American players no longer having to quarantine when they return to England following changes to the UK red list.

Aston Villa’s Emi Martinez, Tottenham’s Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero, Manchester United’s Edinson Cavani and Newcastle’s Miguel Almiron will not have to undergo the 10 days in isolation.

Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay are among the countries that have been removed from the red list which is now down to seven nations.
