Leeds United defender Guiseppe Bellusci is alleged to have made a racist remark to Norwich City striker Cameron Jerome during tonight’s clash between the two Championship sides.

Norwich manager Neil Adams alluded to the incident shortly after the game, during his post match interview, and it has since been confirmed by Adam Pope of Radio Leeds that the referee Mark Clattenburg has taken reports from both players about the situation.

The two players had an open feud on the pitch during the game, with Jerome receiving a yellow card during the first half after supposedly hitting Bellusci, who fell to the ground as a result.
The situation did seem to calm down as the match wore on, with no further arguments between the two, but it now seems as though Jerome was waiting to report the alleged incident of racism.
The game ended as a 1-1 draw, with Leeds equalising through Souleymane Doukara.
