Chelsea boss Lampard declares he wants Zouma to stay

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has declared he wants Kurt Zouma to stay.

The Frenchman impressed in defeat to Kawasaki Frontale today.

Lampard said, "Kurt is a very good defender, a very good person and professional, and I want him here, simple as that. We are competitive with the centre-backs we've got in the team.

"He had a very good season at Everton and I understand why they want him, but he's a Chelsea player and I want him. He's working really hard and if he competes for a position and plays well this season then he plays."
