CORONAVIRUS is sweeping across the globe and the Premier League has been postponed as a result.

But Son Heung-min has completed his period of self-isolation and is expected back in training next week.

Follow all the latest build-up, gossip and transfer news below…

  • BLACKOUT

    Sky Sports and BT Sport will not be offering refunds to customers for the lack of live football on offer.

    The Premier League announced on Friday they would be suspending fixtures until at least April 3 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

    It was a move that followed Spain's La Liga and Italy's Serie A and was later repeated by Germany's Bundesliga and the French Ligue 1.

    The Champions League and Europa League are also on hold with UEFA to take a decision about their future on Tuesday.

    And that leaves football fans with very little to watch on television for the next few weeks.

    Sports subscriptions cost hundreds of pounds per year, but Sky and BT will not be refunding fans for the time there's no football on.

  • MARC MY WORDS

    Former Leeds striker Noel Whelan believes Spurs should be targeting Arsenal target Marcel Sabitzer following his dazzling display against Tottenham on Tuesday.

    Speaking of the RB Leipzig midfielder, he told Football Insider: “He [Sabitzer] is a very talented player, he’s lively.

    “Is he going take over Harry Kane’s place? No, but what they do need is more strength in depth in that centre forward position.

    “Harry’s been blighted with injuries this season, they haven’t had another natural centre forward to go to.

    “I think Jose’s recognising that’s an area in team where they need to have more options.

    “Times like this, when they’ve got a horrendous injury list, he’s now planning for next season. I’m sure he’ll be keeping tabs on him, and other strikers as well.”

  • SON OF A GUN

    Spurs star Heung-min Son is reportedly set to return to training next week after two weeks of self-isolation.

    The Evening Standard claim Son is set to return at the start of the week.

    While Harry Kane will continue his rehabilitation from injury.

  • ROUD AWAKENING

    Former Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson has claimed the club missed a trick in not signing Olivier Giroud in January.

    Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “They tried to get a number nine in the January window.

    “With Harry Kane’s injury, closely followed by Son’s injury and now Bergwijn they have not got anyone who is comfortable playing that position.

    “To not get a striker in January has proven… It was very important.

    “I think it was a real miss not getting Giroud in January. He has got game time and Chelsea and played a lot better. He would suit Mourinho perfectly – occupy the centre-backs and give space for those behind him.

    “It is a difficult sell for Spurs, getting a top striker to play while Kane is out. I really think they missed a trick not signing somebody.”

  • MOUR WOE

    Former Sunderland striker Kevin Phillips has expressed his shock that Jose Mourinho went public in his assessment of Tanguy Dembele.

    Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “Mourinho knows what he is saying, he is not daft.

    He is clever in what he says and getting his message out there, whether that is a reminder to the owner that he needs players in the summer, funds need to be made available.

    “If I am a player out there, running around, putting a shift in and your manager says that their bench could get in our starting eleven I would be gutted.

    “That, from your own manager? Wow. I understand what he is saying because at the moment they probably could! But whether it is right or wrong…”
