West Ham are set to open an internal investigation into a video which showed Kurt Zouma kicking his cat, as Surrey Police launch their own enquiries.
The footage showed Kurt Zouma repeatedly kicking his cat in his London home. The video has been condemned both by his club and by the RSPCA.
Thousands of people have since signed a petition calling for the police to Prosecute Kurt Zouma for animal abuse.

West Ham football club said:: “West Ham United unreservedly condemns the actions of our player, Kurt Zouma, in the video that has circulated.
‘’We have spoken to Kurt and will be dealing with the matter internally, but we would like to make it clear that we in no way condone cruelty towards animals.”
Surrey Police said: “Enquiries are underway after we received an allegation earlier today (February 8), in relation to an animal being abused at an address in north Surrey.’’
“We are currently liaising with the RSPCA with a view to carrying out a joint investigation into the matter. Enquiries remain ongoing and we will provide further updates in due course.”
