Kurt Zouma: Chelsea defender non-committal on future as Everton loan spell nears end

Kurt Zouma is not ready to consider his long-term future until the end of the season as the Chelsea defender’s loan spell at Everton nears its end.

The centre-back has been one of Everton’s best performers in an up and down campaign for Marco Silva’s side, becoming a key man in their defence in the process.

Zouma joined Everton on loan last summer

Zouma has made 23 starts, which would have been at least two more had he not been ineligible to play against his parent club, and has developed a good partnership with fellow centre-back Michael Keane.

Everton want to keep the 24-year-old France international but the final decision will ultimately be Chelsea’s and Zouma’s.

“I don’t know yet. We have five more games to play and then we will see,” said Zouma when asked about his future.
