THREE shamed Sunderland players could face disciplinary action after they were caught on film taking part in a sex romp.
In the seven-minute video, the players are filmed with a mystery brunette referred to as "Stevie".
Goalkeeper Ben Alnwick, 19, winger Liam Lawrence, 24, and striker Chris Brown, 21, are identified as being involved.
Their ex-teammate Martin Woods, 20, who now plays for Rotherham Utd, and two other men, were also at the flat, although remained fully clothed.
The three can expect to face the wrath of manager Roy Keane and chairman Niall Quinn as an investigation gets under way.
During the filming, England under-21 star Alnwick is spotted winking at the camera as he takes part in an act.
It is also alleged Brown does a "Match of the Day" style commentary during the video.
The club's marketing and communications director, Lesley Callaghan, said on behalf of the board: "The behaviour of any individual that adversely affects the image or good name of Sunderland Football Club is obviously disappointing, and we will be handling this matter internally."
This is not the first time Brown, son of ex-Sunderland striker Alan Brown, has found himself in hot water for his behaviour.
He was one of three Black Cat players who admitted taking pot shots at passers-by during a shooting spree with a ball-bearing gun in September 2004.
Armed police had arrested Chris Brown, 19, Ryan Bell and Sean Taylor, both 18, after reports of three men driving around the city firing at pedestrians.
Nobody was injured, but police seized a ball-bearing gun – adapted to fire paintball pellets – and the trio all accepted cautions for public order offences.
Republic of Ireland player Lawrence was sent on loan to Stoke City last month, while Woods was released from the club in the summer.
Alnwick has agreed to join Spurs in January for around 1m.
The players' movement is understood to have nothing to do with the video.
