Sunderland boss David Moyes is "not impressed" after defender Patrick van Aanholt was photographed apparently smoking a shisha pipe.
The 26-year-old Dutchman woke on Friday morning to see the pictures in a national newspaper just days after he was withdrawn from the team to face Tottenham because of a heart scare.
Moyes was less than impressed and has spoken to the player about his off-the-field activities, and while the incident took place during the closed-season, he is not expecting a repeat.
The Scot said: "I don't expect a player to do that, I don't expect a player playing for me to do that. I have had a word with him. I am not impressed.
"But I have got to also say it's a picture that comes out maybe six weeks ago, it was in his off-time, it wasn't during the season.
"But just let me make sure, in no way do I condone it at all. I think it's a bad thing for us to show our younger children and for supporters who follow the players. I don't think it's a good thing, I don't think it's a good thing at all."

Sunderland have signed striker Victor Anichebe on a deal until the end of the season.
The 28-year-old Nigerian has been without a club following his release by West Brom in May.
Black Cats boss David Moyes has taken action after being left with just one senior striker, Jermain Defoe, on the books of the Wearside club.
With Fabio Borini facing up to three months on the sidelines with a groin injury and Steven Fletcher and Danny Graham having departed Sunderland in the summer, Moyes has moved for a player he knows well.
Anichebe was a youth-team player at Everton under Moyes and went on to make more than 130 appearances for the Goodison Park club, before joining West Brom.
Borini's misfortune has left Moyes with just one senior frontman, 33-year-old Defoe.
However, youngsters Duncan Watmore and Joel Asoro, who is just 17, can also be called upon after Moyes' search for reinforcements during the transfer window ended in frustration.
Sunderland striker Fabio Borini is facing up to three months on the sidelines after tearing his groin on his comeback from a toe injury.
Press Association Sport understands the 25-year-old Italian tore an adductor muscle while taking a free-kick during Saturday's 1-1 Premier League draw at Southampton, his first appearance since the opening day of the campaign.
Although the injury is a major blow, Sunderland have allayed fears the Italian could miss as many as six months, and remain hopeful he will be back in fewer than three.
