Ministers are in discussions with Uefa over hosting the Champions League final between Chelsea and Manchester City in the UK - after fans were advised against travelling to Turkey where the match was meant to be taking place on 29 May, APA reports citing BBC.

It follows the decision, announced by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps on Friday, to add Turkey to England's "red list", meaning hotel quarantine is required for all those entering the country from Turkey.

Environment Secretary George Eustice told BBC Breakfast discussions over the match venue were ongoing.

"The UK has, I think, made this offer that we could host it here but it will ultimately be a decision for Uefa.

"It is regrettable that we have had to put Turkey on the 'red list' but we do have to make these judgments based on the science and the risk in individual countries."
