West Brom have suspended an employee and launched an investigation after allegations of racism.

The member of football staff has been accused of operating 'racist and biased practises' in a 10-point grievance letter, seen by BBC Sport.

The club are now looking into the matter with managing director Mark Miles having been made aware of the complaint earlier this month.

The letter alleges several detailed examples of repeated incidents of discrimination against black players at the club.

A West Brom statement read: "West Bromwich Albion Football Club can confirm an employee has been suspended pending an independent investigation into allegations of discriminatory behaviour.
