Official: Zuma joins West Ham United on a four-year deal from Chelsea


West Ham has signed defender Kurt Zouma from London rivals Chelsea on a four-year deal. The English premier league table-toppers revealed they have paid an undisclosed fee, reported to be around £25million, to land the France center-back.

The 26-year-old won two Premier League titles, the Champions League and the EFL Cup during his time at Stamford Bridge. Zouma has spent loan spells with Everton and Stoke City and he is on the move again in a permanent switch to join David Moyes’ high-flying side.

According to the French man, he is pleased to join the hammers for a deal that proves to be a next face in his career. He said “I’m very happy and very proud, My conversation with the manager went very fast. I just felt like he really wanted me to come and join the team, especially a good team that’s started the season very, very well. With the great season that West Ham had last year, that gave the team a lot of confidence to improve this year – and I want to help the team do that.”

What do you think should be the replacement for Zuma, and do you think Chelsea will do well in the backline without the experienced French man? Pls, use the comment box, like, and share.
