Northumbria Police said Peter Copeland, 29, from West Rainton, Durham, is due to appear before Sunderland Magistrates Court on Monday

February 6.

A police spokesman said Copeland had been charged with two offences in connection with the Malicious Communications Act.

The abuse, posted as the Magpies prepared to unveil their new signing, Senegalese striker Papiss Demba Cisse, is alleged to have focused on the number of black players the club has in its squad.
