     Kurt Zouma is today having a medical at Stoke City ahead of joining on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea. The 22-year-old centre-back is being assessed after spending ninth months out with a knee injury. The Potters needing to dig deep in their pockets to cover even this loan deal, with figures of £7m covering a fee and wages being reported.

Here is him in a Stoke city kit:

The newspaper then added on its transfer live blog that Zouma was expected to join the Potters on loan.

This comes after the London Evening Standard reported last week that the French defender had been granted permission by Chelsea to pursue a season-long loan move away from the club.

It was said that Stoke and West Bromwich Albion were among the teams ready to hold talks with the 22-year-old over a potential move.

The report also stated that Blues manager Antonio Conte was keen to send Zouma away on loan to get some regular first team football under his belt.

The Frenchman missed the majority of the 2016-17 campaign season through injury, but he still managed to make 13 appearances across all competitions for west London club.
