At this stage, you'll probably have seen Jack Grealish enjoying himself in Tenerife over the weekend. If not, here he is once more in all his youthful vigour.

There's been two primary reactions to the pictures. From 'leave him alone, sure he's only a young lad' to 'he'll ruin his career if he's up to that craic', it's hard to know where to stand. Leaving aside any sanctimoniousness, it's not a great thing for a young Premier League footballer to be doing, even if it is an end of the season break.
Many were questioning whether it was in fact him. However, we can now safely say that it is given the fact that his club have felt the need to release a (very brief) statement about the pictures.
The club is aware of the photographs of Jack Grealish currently circulating. We will be meeting with the player but any action will remain an internal matter.
There will be no further comment from the club.
So, it's him but we won't be hearing anything about any disciplinary procedures. However, it's safe to say Villa are probably not best pleased with the pictures.
However, if the back page of today's Evening Herald is to be believed, the FAI couldn't give a fuck about the pictures. We're all for wanting him in a green shirt, but that headline is going a but far perhaps. The chap doesn't have a time-machine.
