Chelsea Agree Deal For £12.5m Starlet – reports

Chelsea are set to agree a deal with Besiktas, loaning the Turkish side their talented young centre back Kurt Zouma in January for the rest of the season.

Reports in Turkey have suggested that Besiktas have already agreed a deal with the Stamford Bridge club to take the French central defender on loan for the rest of the campaign.

Zouma moved to Chelsea from Ligue 1 side St Ettiene for £12.5 million in January, but he returned to his former club for the rest of the season on loan.

He was expected to play a bigger role this season for the west London side, but has failed to displace the likes of Gary Cahill and John Terry in defence.

He could now join former Chelsea man Demba Ba at the Turkish side, according to the Daily Star.

It will be interesting to see if Zouma receives further opportunities upon his return, or whether Chelsea have invested in him as a talent to sell on in the future, like current Everton man Romelu Lukaku.

  1. Load of tripe! If it was at the start of the season Id have agreed as I thought he wasnt upto it. But i was wrong. Hes a big strong lad who is calm with a good footballers head that can get real height for a big guy. Apart from that we need CB cover.Cahills not been himself this season and Zoumas been good with JT. With JT probably staying next season we also will need another CB to take his spot. so I hope Santa answers my list for Varane. Felipe/Varane/Zouma/Dave would be a great back 4.

  2. Imunionjack are you sure you watch football, cuz cahil has been,as solid as ever and u saying ivanovic and cahil wont make it in to the first feam next season.

  3. Imunionjack is correct. Cahill has not been himelf especially after he had the cocussion. Ivanovic should replace Dave. Mourhino should start phasing out JT.
