Berlin - VfL Wolfsburg's Kevin de Bruyne is being investigated by the German Football Association (DFB) over reports he swore at a ball-boy during a Bundesliga match.

German daily Bild claim the 23-year-old Belgium international snapped "Give me the ball, you motherfucker!" at a ball-boy late in Wolfsburg's 1-1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday before scoring the equalising goal.

De Bruyne's rant was audible on television and when a Bild reporter confronted him, the midfielder said he will give the youngster, who plays for Frankfurt's Under-16 team, a signed playing shirt.

The DFB has asked Wolfsburg to submit comments over the incident as part of their investigation.

De Bruyne is in the middle of a stellar season for Wolfsburg having scored six league goals and provided 11 assists.
