  • Peter Beardsley placed on leave by Newcastle United amid racial abuse and bullying allegations

The allegation of racism is understood to have been made by African players in Newcastle's Academy set-up and club sources have confirmed to Telegraph Sport that an investigation is underway with Beardsley set to learn his fate later this week.

It is not the first time he has found himself at the centre of claims of unfair treatment during his time working with Newcastle's youth players.

"Peter Beardsley categorically denies the allegations".

Yasin Ben El-Mhanni, an English professional footballer of Moroccan descent who plays as a winger for Newcastle United, has claimed that he was bullied by Peter Beardsley, the current manager of the British club. It is hoped the investigation will conclude quickly.

The club had earlier issued a statement of its own announcing Beardsley's leave of absence which came about as a result of his talks with managing director Lee Charnley and head of safeguarding Steve Swinyard on Monday. The complainants are due to give their evidence this week.

Beardsley, who made more than 300 appearances for Newcastle in two spells as a player, is now in his second period as an Academy coach with the club.

The club are not commenting on the matter, but it is understood that a grievance meeting has been scheduled.

The former Liverpool and Newcastle player was previously cleared of bullying by a Premier League inquiry back in 2003.
