Newcastle United has confirmed it is pursuing alleged racist chants against its players in the goalless draw at Den Haag.
But the occasion was reportedly marred by racist chanting from some sections of the home crowd.
A Newcastle spokesman confirmed in a statement to Press Association Sport it will be addressing the issue with the Eredivisie outfit but will be doing so privately.
It read: "In relation to alleged racist chants reported during Newcastle United's friendly against Den Haag today, the club will be raising the matter with officials at Den Haag and the issue will be dealt with privately."
