Wales are awaiting clarification over whether Aaron Ramsey can join them for their fixtures against England, the Republic of Ireland and Bulgaria after the entire Juventus team went into "fiduciary isolation".

Ramsey was named in Ryan Giggs' squad for the triple header of fixtures between October 8 and 14 following injury but the former Arsenal midfielder's situation is complicated by matters out of his control arising in Turin.

Just five days before Wales are set to take on England at Wembley, Juventus announced on Saturday that two members of staff, neither of whom were players or technical or medical personnel, had tested positive for coronavirus.
