The Premier League will start again on the 20th of June following a vote involving all top-flight teams, according to Arsenal's on-loan midfielder Dani Ceballos.

Top-flight teams voted unanimously to step up their return to action at Monday's shareholders meeting, allowing players to train in a limited capacity as part of phase one of 'Project Restart'.

Covid-19 tests were conducted across Sunday and Monday with six individuals connected to the Premier League to test positive.

And Ceballos has now revealed that Premier League chiefs are aiming to restart the campaign on 20 June.

"We are going to start a week late with respect to what is being talked about in Spain, which is 12 June, and we are going to start the league on the 20th," Ceballos told RTVE.

"48 hours ago we passed the tests and the truth is that the entire team have given a negative result."

On his future, Ceballos, who is on loan at Arsenal from Real Madrid told TVE on Wednesday: "I am a Real Madrid player... and any player in the world would like to play for Real Madrid.

"I have a contract with them for three more years and they are the ideal team to succeed."
