Everton are working with anti-discrimination charity Kick It Out to investigate allegedly racist content in a song about Colombian defender Yerry Mina.

The Toffees say they are aware of a video posted on social media by "an unaffiliated supporters' club".

"Everton has a zero-tolerance stance towards any form of racism," they said.

In 2017, Manchester United warned their fans about a song towards Romelu Lukaku.

Everton added: "We are in contact with Kick It Out and are working with them to investigate the matter further."

Kick It Out said they would report any chanting of the song within a stadium to the Football Association and those found to be singing it could "expect to face punishment".

"Racist stereotypes are never acceptable, irrespective of any intention to show support for a player," the charity said.

"We have contacted Everton regarding the issue and will be working closely with them to ensure a clear message is sent that the chant is not acceptable."
