Done deal: "Popular defender" has signed a six-year contract with Chelsea after agreeing personal terms with the Blues

By

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has signed a new six-year contract with the club.

The Frenchman will however spend next season on loan at Stoke City.

The 22-year-old has struggled with injuries in recent seasons but is now fully fit and eager to enjoy a long campaign in the English Premier League.

The Blues were full of praise for the youngster on their official website, describing him as a popular defender.

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes was also delighted after the agreement has been reached.

"Kurt is undoubtedly one of the most talented young defenders in the game, so naturally his arrival will enhance our playing squad for the forthcoming campaign," Hughes told Stoke's official website.

"We have prioritised adding further strength in depth to defensive positions this summer, and we have certainly done that by fending off any number of clubs who were all interested in taking Kurt on loan.

"He first caught my attention as a 17-year-old during his time at St. Etienne, and in fact, I actually tried to sign him at that point in his career, but whilst that deal never materialised I am delighted to finally get the opportunity to work with him now."
