Jack Grealish will be hauled in front of Aston Villa manager Roberto Di Matteo after the 21-year-old forward was implicated in yet another hippy crack storm, according to a report.
The Sun claims that the midfield starlet is set to be fined by his Villa boss and warned about his future conduct at the club.
The report says that Di Matteo is within his rights to impose a £40,000 sanction – equivalent to two weeks wages – on Grealish after the youngster was involved at a late-night party in a Birmingham hotel.
Reports in the Daily Mail claimed that Grealish and his friends woke startled residents with a loud party at the hotel, in which they used balloons containing nitrous oxide.
The substance is commonly known as hippy crack or laughing gas due to the relaxed feeling people who inhale it can sometimes feel.
Sunday’s incident is one of a long line of misdemeanours Grealish has been involved with in his short Villa career.
The England Under-21 international was caught up in a nitrous oxide scandal last year and in June 2015 the youngster was pictured drunk and sprawled out on a road while on holiday in Tenerife.
Several high-profile football stars have weighed in on the scandal with Stan Collymore, Dwight Yorke and owner Tony Xia all weighing in on the incident.
The attacking midfielder has scored two goals and provided one assist this term as his side have slumped to 18th in the Championship table.
Player ill-discipline and losses to Sheffield Wednesday and Bristol City already seem to have put the brakes on their promotion campaign.
Villa fans will now be hoping their starlet can put the antics behind him and focus on driving the Villans out of the Championship.
In other Aston Villa news, this midfielder has signed with the club after agreeing terms.
