Zouma Joins Chelsea In Summer

Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has made one final move in the transfer market and lured highly-rated St Etienne defender, Kurt Zouma, to Stamford Bridge.

However, the young defender will stay on loan at St Etienne for the remainder of the season and join Chelsea in summer.

The 19-year-old, who won the FIFA U-20 World Cup with France, was also linked with a move to Inter, but instead opted to join Mourinho’s ‘development squad’.

The Chelsea manager was delighted that Chelsea won the chase for Zouma and thinks the player can have a great future at the club.

"We like the profile. We think he is very much adapted to the Premier League," Mourinho said.

"We signed him now, but he will stay at St Etienne till summer.

"He is young player, but we also need the future.

"He already played a couple of seasons with St Etienne and has gained international experience with his countries under 20 squad."

Mourinho's Chelsea was the Premier League's most active club in the transfer window, but Mourinho confirmed that Zouma's signature was the club's deal in January.

"I think well-done Chelsea. In all positions, we have the present and the future."

Zouma’s agent already stated earlier: "He's not going to Inter, but to Mourinho's Chelsea.

"It's a shame for Inter because Zouma is the Pogba of defence.

“But it is not just a question of money, the fact is that the Premier League has most appeal."
