Chelsea are expected to announce the signing of St Etienne defender Kurt Zouma today.
A fee in the region of £12.5 million has been agreed between the two clubs, with sources stating Zouma has also settled on personal terms over a five-and-a-half year contract.
The France international will spend the remainder of this season with Les Verts on-loan.
The Daily Mail says Blues boss Jose Mourinho made a personal call to the teenager to convince him to come to London. Chelsea improved their original offer of £10m to clinch a deal, flush with the proceeds from the sales of Juan Mata and Kevin de Bruyne.
