As part of the deal, Zouma will spend the remainder of this season on loan at Saint-Etienne, something the French side were keen to ensure.

Zouma has long been chased by a number of Europe's top clubs.


He helped France's Under-20s to win the Under-20 World Cup last summer, excelling in central defence.

Now Zouma will prepare to sample Premier League football next season.
