A car has been reportedly stolen from the home of Newcastle United star Alexander Isak after burglars broke in.

It is believed they may have struck the Swedish forward’s home in Darras Hall, in Northumberland, on Thursday 4 April, just 48 hours before he played in Newcastle’s 1-0 win at Fulham on Saturday, according to The Sun newspaper.

Northumbria Police said it received a report of a burglary from a property at around 10.05pm on Thursday.

A force spokesman said: “The offence is believed to have taken place earlier that day.

“It was reported that offenders gained entry to the property and took a vehicle from the address.

“The vehicle was later found abandoned in the Dissington area, and the occupants had fled the scene.”

It is not known whether the Swedish international or his family were at home at the time of the burglary.

Police have not confirmed the identity of the victim and said “inquiries remain ongoing”.

It follows what is believed to have been an attempted burglary at the home of Newcastle United player Joelinton in January.

Officers received a call on 13 January from a concerned homeowner, who the force did not name, who reported that three men were inside their property in north Newcastle.

Newcastle were playing Manchester City at St James' Park at the time of the incident.

Police at the time said those alleged to be involved had fled the scene when they arrived.

And in December, Manchester City star England midfielder Jack Grealish spoke of his devastation after burglars struck his Cheshire home.

In an Instagram post after the raiders struck, reportedly taking jewellery and watches during City’s Premier League clash against Everton, he wrote: “This has been a traumatic experience for all of us, I am just so grateful that nobody was hurt.”
