Tony Henry has been suspended by West Ham United in the wake of comments he made regarding African players.

The club's Director of Player Recruitment has been removed from his postion whilst the club investigates disturbing claims made by the Daily Mail that suggested Henry had told agents that he would not sign any more African players for West Ham.

"The club can confirm that Director of Player Recruitment Tony Henry has been suspended pending a full and thorough investigation," read a statement released by West Ham this morning.

"West Ham United will not tolerate any type of discrimination and has, therefore, acted swiftly due to the serious nature of these claims.

The West Ham United family is an inclusive one where, regardless of gender, age, ability, race, religion or sexual orientation, everybody feels welcome and included. The club will make no further comment until the investigation has been concluded."
