Kurt Zouma Staying Put In London As Everton Look To Seal Loan

Transfer: Manchester United in talks to sign Chelsea defender

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma is close to signing for Everton on loan, according to reports.

And now they are trying to push through an agreement to sign Zouma on a season-long loan deal and have submitted a deal sheet with the Premier League to get more time to complete the move. However, a ruptured knee ligament suffered in 2016 slowed down his progress considerably and he now appears to have no future at Stamford Bridge.

Jose Mourinho 'not confident' of deadline day signings
Klopp landed Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker for £66 million and paid £52 million for RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita. Crucially, Chelsea have so far staved off interest from Real and Barcelona in Eden Hazard and Willian.

Zouma subsequently missed almost one season of football before he made his return to the pitch.

He has not made an appearance in any of the pre-season fixtures under new manager, Maurizio Sarri. And, Manchester United and Everton are interested. Manchester United need a defensive upgrade on the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones and Zouma is certainly that.

Lombok hit by another strong quake
Aid agencies say the number is likely to increase dramatically as they gain access to the worst-hit parts of the island. The Indonesian Red Cross said it had set up 10 mobile clinics in the north of the island.

But, the Manchester United boss has only been met with disappointment in his bid to sign a centre-back, the latest coming in the form of Diego Godin's reported rejection. But, before suffering that terrible cruciate ligament injury in the spring of 2016, Zouma was seen as one of the best young defenders around. Manchester United have thus, opened negotiations with their rivals over a possible move for the 23-year-old, although the Blues are unwilling to sell to a direct rival.

However, Chelsea are understood to prefer a loan and L'Equipe now claim that they have agreed terms with the Toffees over a season-long deal for the France worldwide.

Israel, Hamas agree truce to end Gaza flare-up -Palestinian officials

Everton instead turned to moves for Yerry Mina and Chelsea's Kurt Zouma.
