L'Equipe are an extremely reliable source, and the fact that they are reporting this indicates the deal is close to completion.

Everton have announced the signing of Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma on a season-long loan deal.

Zouma subsequently missed almost one season of football before he made his return to the pitch.

Zouma spent a year ago on loan at Stoke, who were relegated after finishing 19th, but his path to the first team at Chelsea looks hard due to the presence of Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, Andreas Christensen and Gary Cahill.

Players have criticized Goodell's ban , calling it an infringement on their right to protest peacefully. Lineman Chris Long placed a supportive arm around Jenkins.

Colombia centre-back Yerry Mina was one of three signings for Everton on Deadline Day, but manager Marco Silva confirmed a deal to bring in Zouma was "almost done" on Friday - ahead of their Premier League opener against Wolves on Saturday.

"Capped twice by France, he lifted the League Cup under Jose Mourinho in 2015".

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. But, before suffering that awful cruciate ligament injury in the spring of 2016, Zouma was seen as one of the best young defenders around.

Everton secured deals for Mina and attacking midfielders Andre Gomes and Bernard on the final day of the Premier League transfer window as they look to improve upon their finish of eighth last season.
