Everton expected to confirm loan signing of Kurt Zouma from Chelsea

Manager of Everton Marco Silva looks on during the Pre Season Friendly between Everton and Valencia at Goodison Park Transfer: Manchester United in talks to sign Chelsea defender

But according to the BBC, there is nothing to the recent links with Godin and the Uruguay global is not going to be joining Manchester United on deadline day.

Everton have completed the signing of Chelsea centre-half Kurt Zouma on a season-long loan. After two years of gradual progress within the first-team setup at Stamford Bridge, the player saw his development come to a grinding halt when he sustained a major knee injury.

Everton were also linked with a move for out of favour Manchester United star Marcos Rojo, but have not been able to make head way on the deal.

The French worldwide spent last season out on loan at Stoke City but couldn't prevent them from being relegated from the Premier League and he's now facing an uncertain future back at Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri.

Zouma is understood to not be in new boss Maurizio Sarri's plans and he is keen to move to the Toffees to play Premier League football.

While Everton are thought to have agreed to that particular clause, just like they did when they signed Gerard Deulofeu from the Catalan club in 2015, Manchester United were not interested and pulled away from negotiations. In his desperation to sign a player, it now looks like the manager has turned his attention towards one of his former clubs, Chelsea.

Multiple reports on deadline day said Everton had reached a deal for Zouma, but an announcement never came after the additions of Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes from Barcelona.

Barcelona have also announced Andre Gomes is moving to Everton on loan along with Colombian centre-back Mina.
