Chelsea have met with ref Mark Clattenburg.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea held secret peace talks with Clattenburg and his 15 elite referee colleagues on Monday.

Bruce Buck, the Stamford Bridge chairman, travelled to the National Football Centre at St George's Park in a bid to repair the damage caused by the false accusations of racism that were levelled against Clattenburg.

Part of the discussion even focused on the possibility of Clattenburg taking charge of a Chelsea game in the future.
