Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has distanced himself from claims in a national newspaper this morning that two footballers are ready to come out as gay in public.
The 20-year-old, currently injured with a horrific double leg break that he sustained last month, responded to the claims on Twitter.
The Mirror stated this morning that two footballers – one an England international – were ready to become the first top-flight footballers to come out in public.
Shaw, though, has rejected suggestions that it is him.
