  • Kurt Zouma of Stoke City in action during the Premier League match between Everton and Stoke City at Goodison Park

Everton are expected to announced the signing of Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma on Friday morning, with the Frenchman joining on a season-long loan.

L'Equipe are an extremely reliable source, and the fact that they are reporting this indicates the deal is close to completion. After two years of gradual progress within the first-team setup at Stamford Bridge, the player saw his development come to a grinding halt when he sustained a major knee injury. And, Manchester United and Everton are interested.

Zouma spent last season on loan at Stoke City last term however, he was unable to save them from escaping relegation.

Set to don the red of Manchester United? A number of defenders have been linked with the Premier League heavyweights as Jose Mourinho aims to solidify his backline for the upcoming season.

Barcelona will have a buy-back option on Yerry Mina
Barcelona can buy the centre-half back for around £30m if he does well at Goodison but, for now, he is an Everton player. However, Allardyce feels that Everton still have far too many wide players to cope with.

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

The Toffees significantly bolstered their squad on transfer deadline day with the arrivals of Bernard, Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina, but their business is not yet done, with a temporary move for Zouma in the pipeline. And Kurt Zouma could still join him on Merseyside, even though the transfer window slammed shut at 5:00pm on Thursday.
