ASTON VILLA BOSS Roberto Di Matteo has confirmed the club are conducting an internal investigation regarding Jack Grealish.

It was reported this week that the former Ireland U21 winger, who switched allegiance to England last year, was partying at a Birmingham hotel into the early hours of Sunday morning to celebrate his 21sth birthday after the 0-0 draw against Ipswich Town.

Di Matteo, whose side have won just one of their eight Championship matches this season, confirmed the ongoing investigation at his press conference this morning.

On Wednesday, Villa chairman Tony Xia bizarrely tweeted Grealish urging him to stay focused, while former Villa star Stan Collymore has written him an open letter warning him of hangers-on.
