Everton expected to confirm loan signing of Kurt Zouma from Chelsea

Everton expected to confirm loan signing of Kurt Zouma from Chelsea

Everton today moved to sign Yerry Mina from Barcelona but it appears another centre-back could be incoming in Zouma.

Reports also claim that Silva allowed Ashley Williams to move to relegated Stoke - effectively replacing Zouma - on loan and let Ramiro Funes Mori join Spain's Villarreal, leaving him desperate to bring in new faces.

He will wear the No.5 shirt at Goodison Park.

Mina ultimately made a £27 million move to fellow Premier League side Everton on deadline day, where the Toffees will hope he can produce the form he showed at the World Cup this summer.

Zouma is Everton's seventh signing of pre-season alongside Richarlison, Lucas Digne, Joao Virginia, Bernard, Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.

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.

Zouma, 23, spent last season at Stoke before returning to Stamford Bridge over the summer.

Manchester United missed out on signing Yerry Mina from Barcelona, despite Jose Mourinho making personal contact with the Colombia global. They also bought in left-back Joe Bryan from Bristol City, plus three players on loan - goalkeeper Sergio Rico from Sevilla, Atletico Madrid forward Luciano Vietto and United's Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

"They play well. It's a tough game for sure".
