Zouma has been a regular presence in the Premier League for nearly a decade after spells with Chelsea, Stoke and Everton before joining the Hammers in 2021. 

West Ham did not provide a timescale for the 28-year-old’s expected recovery, but did release a statement that read: ‘West Ham United can confirm that Kurt Zouma has had surgery on a knee injury.

‘The French defender will now continue his rehabilitation at Rush Green with the Club’s medical team.

‘Everyone at West Ham United would like to wish Kurt a speedy recovery.’

In June, Zouma was ordered to carry out 180 hours of community service and banned from keeping cats for five years after admitting kicking and slapping his pet cat.
