“This is a private matter which we are taking seriously. It will be handled internally,” the club said in a statement, reported by Sky Sports.

The incident comes after several of the club’s players were warned in December 2018 for inhaling gas from balloons, believed to be nitrous oxide or “laughing gas”, when CCTV footage of a private party at a club in August emerged.
