Premier League clubs are set to replace the Black Lives Matter slogan on players' shirts with a patch promoting the competition's own anti-discrimination campaign.

As Sportsmail revealed on Thursday, no plans are in place to keep the controversial BLM symbol on jerseys when the new campaign kicks off this week.

It will be recommended to club captains in a call on Wednesday that a 'No Room for Racism' patch be placed below the Premier League badge on the sleeve.
