London - Aston Villa have decided not to take further action
against striker Gabriel Agbonlahor over his recent trip to Dubai, the Premier
League's bottom club announced on Tuesday.
Agbonlahor, 29, was pictured smoking a shisha pipe during a
holiday in the city and was left out of the squad for Saturday's 4-0 home
defeat by Chelsea while the club carried out an investigation.
But in a brief statement on Twitter, Villa said: "Aston
Villa Football Club has completed its investigation into Gabby Agbonlahor's
trip to Dubai over the international break.

"The club will be taking no further action."
An academy graduate, Agbonlahor is Villa's longest-serving
player and current club captain, but has made only 15 Premier League
appearances this season, scoring once.
Villa, who parted company with manager Remi Garde last week,
are 15 points from safety with six games of the season remaining, making them
near certainties for relegation.For
