Alan Pardew has confirmed Newcastle will discipline Leon Best and Stephen Ireland for visiting a nightclub the evening before a game.
Best and Ireland issued a joint apology on Monday after a photograph of the pair and reserve team player Stephen Folan was published on the Tup Tup Palace club's website following a visit on Friday.
The Magpies had a trip to Stoke on Saturday, and although Best and Ireland were unavailable for the fixture through injury, they were nevertheless in breach of a club rule.
Best missed the Potters clash due to an ankle injury but joined up with the Republic of Ireland squad in Dublin this week ahead of their Euro 2012 qualifier against Macedonia and the friendly clash with Uruguay.
Pardew intends to deal with the matter when he has all three players back at the club following the international break.
"All I want to say on that is that as Leon Best has travelled with Ireland, we've not faced each other yet," Pardew, told the Evening Chronicle.
"There will be discipline involved, for sure, but I want to see all three together in my office before I say anything more."
ReturnMeanwhile, Ireland could make his long-awaited Newcastle debut in the home game against Wolves on 2nd April.
Ireland has yet to make his debut for Newcastle since arriving on loan from Aston Villa on transfer deadline day due to a thigh problem.
However, Ireland has been pencilled in for a return to training next week.
Newcastle assistant manager John Carver said: "Stephen Ireland will resume full training on Monday - he will join in with the group then and get a good week of training before Wolves, so we're hopeful there."
