Chelsea midfielders N’Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will miss the club’s pre-season tour of the United States because of their Covid vaccination status.

BBC reports that ‘The Blues’ travelled to Los Angeles on Saturday for a training camp, but travellers yet to be fully vaccinated against coronavirus are not allowed to enter the United States.

Currently only US citizens are allowed to enter the country if they are not fully vaccinated.

“N’Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will not travel due to their Covid vaccination status,” Chelsea said in a statement.

Chelsea are due to play three pre-season friendlies in the United States.
