Manchester United star rubbishes reports he is set to come out as gay
On the back of newspaper reports that a Premier League footballer is set to come out, Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has gone on his Twitter account to deny that he is gay.
The Mirror reported that two players - one of whom is reportedly an England international - were set to become the first openly gay Premier League footballers but Shaw addressed the rumours earlier today.
Former top flight footballer Justin Fashanu came out as gay in 1990 but as of yet, there are no openly homosexual Premier League players.
