The United youngster has remained silent following the removal of his Twitter presence, whilst Phil Foden has responded to the incident earlier on Monday.
Writing via Twitter on Monday evening, Foden said: ‘Following the story which has emerged today regarding my actions in Iceland, I want to make a full apology.
Foden took to social media on Monday evening to issue a full apology to everybody involved
‘I apologise to Gareth Southgate, to my England team mates, to the staff, supporters, and also to my Club and family.
‘I am a young player with a lot to learn, but I am aware of the huge responsibility I have in representing Manchester City and England at this level.
‘On this occasion I made a poor decision and my behaviour didn’t meet the standards expected of me.
‘I breached COVID-19 protocols put in place to protect myself and my England colleagues. As a consequence I will now miss the opportunity to travel to Denmark with the squad, and that hurts.’
