West Ham have confirmed that manager David Moyes has tested positive for COVID-19. 

Republic of Ireland midfielder Josh Cullen and Issa Diop have also produced positive test results. 

The two players had been named in the starting XI for tonight’s Carabao Cup third round tie with Hull City. 

When informed of their positive results, all three left the London Stadium immediately.

The game with Hull went ahead as planned, with Jack Wilshere and Harrison Ashby starting in place of Cullen and Diop. Assistant boss Alan Irvine took charge from the sideline.

In a statement, West Ham say they offered Hull testing which they refused.

 

West Ham statement: 

West Ham United can confirm that David Moyes, Issa Diop and Josh Cullen have returned positive tests for COVID-19.

The Club’s medical team were informed of the test results as the team were at London Stadium preparing for this evening’s Carabao Cup third round tie against Hull City. The manager and both players immediately left the stadium and have returned home.

All three, who are asymptomatic, will now follow Public Health England and Premier League guidelines and protocols.

Everyone at West Ham United send their best wishes to David, Issa and Josh.

Tuesday’s match will go ahead as planned, with Assistant Manager Alan Irvine taking charge of the team.

The Club’s measures and protocols around COVID-19 remain stringent. This included offering to test the Hull City team ahead of tonight’s fixture – an offer which they opted not to accept.
