Everton finally seal loan deal for Kurt Zouma from Chelsea

Everton manager Marco Silva is hoping to land Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma in a bid to solve his side's defensive lapses before his side's Premier League opener against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

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

Manchester United were earlier linked with the likes of Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld and even Yerry Mina but failed in their pursuit of all three players.

The French global spent last season out on loan at Stoke City but couldn't prevent them from being relegated from the Premier League and he's now facing an uncertain future back at Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri.

"Capped twice by France, he lifted the League Cup under Jose Mourinho in 2015".

Zouma was signed by Mourinho in 2014 when he was the manager of the London based outfit.

Everton on Thursday also acquired winger Bernard on a free transfer, while defender Mina joined from Barcelona for an initial fee of £28m and midfielder Gomes arrived on loan.

The 5pm deadline for buying English clubs has already passed, but the Toffees have apparently submitted an extension request to the Premier League as they look to thrash out a deal for the Frenchman.

Chelsea's stance over the interest from Manchester United gives Everton a major boost to land him on a loan deal, with the Toffees going into overdrive on deadline day.
