Tottenham Hotspur's Europa Conference League tie with Rennes on Thursday is postponed amid the Lilywhites' coronavirus outbreak.

Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that their proposed Europa Conference League tie with Rennes on Thursday has been called off amid a coronavirus outbreak at the club.

Manager Antonio Conte confirmed that eight players and five players had tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday in what the Italian described as a 'scary' situation.

Spurs' home clash with Rennes was still expected to go ahead as planned, but the Lilywhites have now confirmed that the game will not take place.

A statement on the official Tottenham website read: "We can confirm that our UEFA Europa Conference League Group G home fixture against Stade Rennais will not take place tomorrow (Thursday 9 December at 8pm UK) after a number of positive COVID-19 cases at the Club. Discussions are ongoing with UEFA and we shall provide a further update on this fixture in due course.

"Additionally, following discussions with the Health Security Agency (formerly Public Health England) and DCMS advisers, the Club has been advised to close the First Team area of its Training Centre at this time, in the interests of the health and safety of players and staff. All other areas of the Training Centre remain operational."

The club are also expected to request the postponement of Sunday's Premier League clash with Brighton & Hove Albion after recording 13 positive cases.
