Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has ruled out a return to fellow Premier League club Everton for Kurt Zouma.
In his latest interview monitored by the Daily Mail, Frank Lampard revealed that he wants to keep the player at the club.
French defender Zouma has returned to Chelsea this summer after spending last season on loan at Merseyside giants Everton.
He joined Everton on a season-long loan deal on the deadline day of last summer’s transfer window.
Kurt Zouma impressed a great deal at Everton and the Toffees were interested in a permanent deal for him.
Everton manager Marco Silva had previously said that he wants to keep the defender at Goodison Park but it seems like the Portuguese tactician won’t get his wish.
Frank Lampard has shown the willingness to give Chelsea loanees from last season a chance in his squad as he settles down to his new job as the Blues manager.
He signed a three-year deal at Chelsea until the end of the 2021/22 season.
Chelsea and Lampard are somewhat handicapped in the current transfer window due to the ban slammed on them by world football’s governing body FIFA.
The Blues have taken their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
