Man Utd open Chelsea talks for Zouma

Kurt Zouma is on the verge of leaving Chelsea

Everton were linked with a deadline day loan swoop for Chelsea's Premier League youngster Kurt Zouma, but the transfer window has now closed.

Usually in cases such as this clubs can approach the Premier League and request more time to complete the deal, if they can provide all the necessary paperwork and prove that the completing the deal is just a matter of dotting i's and crossing t's.

Zouma arrived at Chelsea in 2014, with a lot of excitement around his talent. However, a ruptured knee ligament suffered in 2016 slowed down his progress considerably and he now appears to have no future at Stamford Bridge.

It might be hard for him to get regular playing time at Chelsea this season, so sending him out on loan makes sense.

Jordan Ayew Completes Loan Switch To Crystal Palace
Ed Dove is a writer and scout who has a deep and enduring passion for African sport, politics and literature. Ayew, 26, was the club's top scorer last season with 11 goals as they were relegated from the Premier League.

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. He was, in his defence, one of their better players. 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.

The Toffees left it late to make an approach to loan the France global but as both sides submitted their paperwork before the 5pm deadline, the deal was allowed to proceed.

Chelsea have evidently deemed Zouma as surplus to requirements for the upcoming season, with the player now set to move on and gain first-team experience elsewhere.
