OFFICIAL: Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma joins Everton on a season-long loan

Everton have announced the signing of Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma on a season-long loan.

The Toffees made a late move for the 23-year-old on deadline day but had to wait until Friday to learn if their bid had been successful.

Zouma moved to Chelsea in 2014 and has won the Premier League twice. A serious injury sustained in February 2016 ruled him out for a lengthy period of time, but he was gradually reintroduced to the side towards the end of the following campaign as Chelsea lifted the title again.

Zouma has made 71 appearances for the Blues and spent last season on loan at Stoke.

He becomes Everton’s eighth summer signing following Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes and Bernard’s arrival at Goodison Park on Thursday.

Richarlison, Lucas Digne and Joao Virginia have also joined Marco Silva’s squad this summer.

Chelsea have also loaned out striker Michy Batshuayi, to Spanish side Valencia.
