Female guests have been pictured giving lap dances to Premier League footballer Moise Kean during lockdown.
His club labelled the behaviour ‘unacceptable’ after the £27million striker, who earns £53,000 a week, reportedly sent footage of himself partying at his Cheshire apartment to a private Snapchat group, in breach of the Government’s guidelines for the current pandemic.
His club have said they are ‘appalled’ by Kean’s actions – and are thought to be considering taking disciplinary action.

Everton have slammed the actions of striker Moise Kean after an alleged breach of lockdown

According to The Mirror, several female guests were filmed ‘giving lap dances and undertaking other suggestive acts’.
One caption is even said to have read ‘quarantine clean’.
The same outlet reports one source describing the party as ‘absolutely wild west’.
Everton released a statement condemning the social media antics on Saturday night.
It read: ‘Everton Football Club was appalled to learn of an incident in which a first-team player ignored government guidance and club policy in relation to the coronavirus crisis.
‘The club has strongly expressed its disappointment to the player and made it clear that such actions are completely unacceptable.

Everton signed Kean for £27.5m from Juventus last summer and he has just one league goal
‘Everton has regularly stressed the importance of following all the government guidelines – including rules and advice for inside and outside of the home – through a series of official communications to all staff members, including players.
‘The amazing people in the NHS deserve the utmost respect for their hard work and sacrifice. The best way to show them respect is by doing everything we can to protect them.’
Kean also filmed himself on board a private jet alone on Friday, and posted further clips dancing in the back of a vehicle along with a friend after landing.
It comes a few weeks after Aston Villa star Jack Grealish was caught ‘stupidly’ flouting government lockdown rules when attending a late-night party at the flat of former team-mate Ross McCormack.
Jack Grealish issued a grovelling apology for breaking lockdown rules to attend a party
Grealish was pictured after leaving a penthouse apartment, where he crashed his £70,000 Range Rover and damaged two parked cars, and he has since issued a grovelling apology on social media.
Manchester City star Kyle Walker was also similarly criticised after hosting a party with two sex workers during lockdown.
Kean has reportedly become disillusioned with his lack of playing time at Everton, particularly since new boss Carlo Ancelotti took over, and may fashion an exit when the transfer window reopens.
The Italian forward has struggled since completing his move from Juventus and has scored just one goal in 22 appearances for the Toffees.
He has had a difficult time since moving to Goodison Park, having seen himself subbed on and then off again when Duncan Ferguson was in temporary charge.
Kean’s attitude was also questioned after that game at Old Trafford, with suggestions he had not run enough to stay on the pitch.
