If this Kurt Zouma transfer ends up not happening it'll be one of the biggest surprises in the history of transfers. We've already heard that Chelsea and St. Etienne have come to an agreement for the young defender (13 million plus bonuses), St. Etienne themselves are telling reporters that the deal is done from their end and now we've got even more confirmation from the player's agent. TO THE TWITTER!
Zouma's agent has just confirmed me: "Zouma signs for Chelsea today and he'll stay in Saint-Etienne until the end of the season" #CFC— Guglielmo Cannavale (@GugliCannavale) January 31, 2014
Cut and dry, I'd say. Zouma's been ill for the last few weeks, but I can't imagine that that will have any impact on his medical, and I also can't imagine that personal terms will take too long to negotiate. We have confirmation from all parties but Chelsea themselves now, so hey, it's probably time to get excited.
