Napoli have confirmed Victor Osimhen has recovered from COVID-19 having been under treatment for more than two weeks.
The Nigeria international has tested negative to the coronavirus after spending more than 14 days in isolation.
The centre-forward contracted the virus during his visit to Nigeria where he celebrated the yuletide season.
Osimhen also used the opportunity to celebrate his 22nd birthday.
It was later revealed through the social media the forward did not follow COVID-19 protocol during the celebration.
On his return to Stadio San Paolo, he was isolated for 14 days, but after the period, he was subjected to another test, which again came out positive.
Osimhen has now been given the all-clear to rejoin the rest of Gennaro Gattuso’s side after testing negative to the virus.
“Victor Osimhen has recovered from Covid-19,” read a tweet from Napoli.
It is not yet clear if the Super Eagles attacker will be available for selection when the Parthenopeans take on Hellas Verona in a Serie A game on Sunday.
Osimhen has only made nine appearances for Napoli, scoring two goals and providing one assist since teaming up with the club in the summer.
