Kurt Zouma has today joined Everton Football Club on a season-long loan from  Chelsea.

A deal had been agreed by both clubs before 7PM deadline and was eventually confirmed earlier this afternoon.

The Toffees have now completed four siginings on Deadline Day after Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes and Bernard joined the club on the last day of the transfer market window.

Zouma, who joined Chelsea from Ligue 1 side Saint-Etienne back in 2014, has enjoyed a successful loan-spell at Stoke City collecting 34 appearances in the 2017/18 season despite the Potters were eventually relegated.

Everton have confirmed the signing of talented attacking-midfielder Bernard from Shakhtar Donetsk on Deadline Day.

The Brazilian star had been recently linked also with a move to Chelsea, before joining the Toffees a few minutes before the transfer market window was closed.

Bernard told Everton’s official website: “I chose Everton because of all the things I had heard about Marco Silva and after speaking to him I was happy with what he said to me. The manager made me feel confident about playing here. He is a very good coach and he has achieved really good things at other clubs”.

“Everton is a club with a great structure and a lot of tradition, historically the fourth most successful club in England. When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy. That is why I made my choice, because of the confidence both the manager and the Club showed in me. I did not need any convincing to come here. I believe I will be able to show my best as a player here.”

Chelsea are set to complete the signing of Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic on loan until the end of 2018/19 season, according to reports in Spanish publication Marca.

The Blues will reportedly have an option to make the move permanent on a £55m basis.

The former Inter Milan star is reportedly training alone as a move to Chelsea is edging closer.

Meanwhile, Chelsea target Bernard is said to be on the verge of joining Everton on a permanent move and is expected to undergo his medical at Finch Farm in the next few hours.

Crystal Palace hope to sign Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan again next season.

Palace believe the Blues could allow the England international, who made his first World Cup start for the Three Lions in Sunday’s 6-1 win against Panama, to go out on loan for another year.

Loftus-Cheek played a key role in helping the Eagles avoid relegation last season and has made it clear he wants regular football next term.

Palace want the 22-year-old back but are likely to face competition after his impressive performances for England, with Everton and Newcastle interested.
But Loftus-Cheek enjoyed his time at Palace and they hope that will put them at the front of the queue to sign him.
However the midfielder, who grew-up as a footballer in Chelsea academy and made his first team debut under José Mourinho three years ago, said he will decide his future once his experience in the World Cup is over.

Should David Luiz leave the club in summer, Chelsea board would strengthen the squad with a defensive replacement.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly leading the race as they are expected to sell Toby Alderweireld on a £55m move with Manchester United still interested in the Belgian defender.

New Chelsea signing Ross Barkley made his debut with the Blues shirt in the Carabao Cup semifinal against Arsenal last Wednesday when he replaced injured Willian.

The former Everton attacking midfielder didn’t impressed but it was his first appearance after a very bad hamstring injury occurred last August that ruled him out until the other night.

Today, Antonio Conte claimed Willian is still injured and sidelined for the next games, then he revealed the England international is ready to start:

“After a bad injury you need a little time to be fit 100%, if you want to speed this process up he has to play, not only training during the week, after Willian and Morata‘s injury, we don’t have other options.”
