Amine Harit is set to miss Schalke 04's Bundesliga encounter with Werder Bremen on Saturday after being infected with COVID-19, according to Bild.
Schalke 04 announced earlier today that a member of their squad tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday, and Bild claims that Harit is the player in question.
"The player in question has been in quarantine since being informed about the positive test result. The player had tested negative for the virus during a previous round of testing on Tuesday," said Schalke in a statement, which revealed that all other tests came back negative.
"Team doctor Dr. Patrick Ingelfinger, who is also in charge of the team’s hygiene concept, is in contact with the local health authorities and other public authorities in order to discuss and implement any further measures. Schalke 04 will of course implement any regulations set forth by the local authorities."
Meanwhile, Gladbach's Jordan Beyer has also been infected with the virus ahead of Saturday's game against Union Berlin at Borussia-Park, the club said on Friday.
