Zouma wanted by Stoke and West Brom

Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion are keen to take Kurt Zouma on loan.

The Chelsea defender, 22, is expected to hold talks with both clubs about a potential move.

Zouma returned to action last season after nearly a year on the sidelines with a knee injury.

His first-team prospects at Chelsea currently look limited, particularly following the recent signing of Antonio Rudiger, and Blues boss Antonio Conte is prepared to let him move elsewhere.

A number of other clubs, including Valencia, have been linked with the Frenchman, but there appears to be a strong chance he will stay in the Premier League.
