The Premier League considered a £3million donation to the NHS following talks last month regarding the vaccination of players against Covid-19, according to reports.

The Athletic claim that some top-flight clubs believed the league could have bought a number of coronavirus vaccines and then donated the money currently spent on testing to the NHS.
