Newcastle United announce that Under-23s boss Peter Beardsley "will take a period of leave" while an investigation continues into complaints made against him.

"Peter Beardsley is aware of inaccurate media reports which result from unauthorised leaks", read his statement. It is hoped the investigation will conclude quickly.

Beardsley, one of the biggest names in Newcastle United's history is at the centre of claims of bullying and racism.

Beardsley made more than 300 appearances for his home-town club in two spells during a glittering career which also took him to Manchester United, Liverpool, Everton and Manchester City. "Peter respectfully request that his privacy and that of his family is respected".

It emerged at the weekend that Yasin Ben El-Mhanni, a 22-year old midfielder with the club, had - with the backing of team-mates - made a formal complaint against Beardsley.

Beardsley reported for work at the club's Benton training headquarters as usual on Tuesday morning, but was then summoned to St James' Park.

The former England worldwide is the subject of claims made by some of the club's young African players as well as London-born winger Yasin Ben El-Mhanni, who is of Moroccan descent.

The concerning thing is that this is not the first time Beardsley has been in the news for this kind of thing - back in 2003, the Magpies legend, along with academy director Kenny Wharton faced accusations of bullying by youth players, but the pair were cleared by the Premier League.
