Jones is understood to have been furious after discovering the bloody carcass in his locker on Friday morning and threw a brick through the windscreen of Glenn Whelan's car as revenge.

 

The picture of the pig was then posted on Instagram by American winger Brek Shea to heap embarrassment on Stoke, who have already begun an inquiry into the incident.

 

It is understood Whelan, the Republic of Ireland international, was behind the prank and he is expected to meet Stoke officials to explain his behaviour before Sunday's trip to Southampton.

 

A Stoke statement read: "The Club takes seriously reports of an incident at our Training Ground this afternoon.

"A full internal investigation will be carried out and those responsible for any unacceptable behaviour will be dealt with in accordance with the Club’s disciplinary procedures."

 

This latest practical joke comes days after Michael Owen's Mercedes was pelted with eggs and flour, while it is understood other pranks have been taking place all week as Stoke prepare for their final game of the season.

 

However, Whelan and Jones could now face disciplinary action, with chief executive Tony Scholes leading the inquiry.

 

Jones's girlfriend, Kissa Abdullah, wrote on Twitter: "Big men acting like kids a pigs head is not a prank its just disgusting!!!!! Wtf??? I don't get how was that sup 2 be funny!!!! Really???"

 

 

Footballers behaving like nobs?  What are the chances of that?

 

Kenwyne Jones' girlfriend seems to have said on Twitter that he's Muslim, in which case a pigs head in his locker is an outrageous thing to do.  No wonder he went bonkers.

I'm all for a practical joke, but if Jones is indeed Muslim, then whoever did that needs sacking. Totally unacceptable, in a religious context. 

He's a devout Christian. Even still, you must a total be idiot to think a pig's head makes for a great prank.

That would be a massive over reaction.
