Sunday’s BBL Trophy final faces a fresh twist after three Newcastle Eagles players opted out of the game.

MVP can confirm three players – Nick Schlizter, Sade Aded Hussein, Mike Morsell -have left the country due to the coronavirus outbreak, leaving the Tyneside outfit short-handed for their clash with Solent Kestrels in Glasgow.

Club officials said: “All three players returned to their respective home countries today after voicing concerns relating to the latest developments surrounding the coronavirus pandemic and announcements made by the US government last night.

“The club understands and respects their decision to leave the UK and wishes them all of the best in the future.”

The final is set to proceed as scheduled.
