Kurt Zouma will not be joining Chelsea this month, with his agent rubbishing speculation from England that suggested a deal had been all but done for the 19-year-old.

Chelsea are known to be firm fans of Zouma and the player revealed earlier this month that Jose Mourinho had given him a personal phone call to express his interest.

But talk of a deal being done is wide of the mark, Zouma's agent David Venditelli has insisted.

"This is not true", he told Eurosport.


"There has been no significant progress on the case.

"Clubs are interested in Kurt, but not with the conditions set by president Bernard Caiazzo."

Zouma has clocked up 12 appearances in Ligue 1 for Saint-Etienne during the current campaign, while the French side have tied him down on a contract which runs until the summer of 2017.
