Chelsea could be loaning out Kurt Zouma for yet another season, this time to Sunderland. Reports have emerged that the 19-year old Chelsea defender is not yet a part of manager Jose Mourinho’s immediate plans.

Mourinho a key factor

Joining the London club from St. Etienne of Ligue 1 in January, Zouma was immediately loaned back to the French club to spend the rest of the season in France.

The promising young defender who was being courted by a number of clubs claimed he joined Chelsea for manager Mourinho, snubbing other clubs like Manchester United in the process. However, it seems Chelsea are still not yet ready to induct him into the first team.

Not ready for the first-team

With the likes of John Terry and Gary Cahill firmly ensconced in the central defence, Zouma’s prospects are not great at present. Although Tomas Kalas has been loaned out to Cologne, at Chelsea Zouma would still only play understudy to the English defenders already established at the club.

Chelsea are also believed to be looking to sign a new centre back; Eliaqum Mangala and Raphael Varane seem to be the targets.

However, the Blues will surely think of keeping the defender as a substitute, maybe even an occasional starter.

A loan deal the best option?

Sunderland on the other hand would greatly benefit from such a deal, having avoided relegation by the skin of their teeth.

Despite having missed out on the French World Cup squad, Zouma is an exciting young prospect.
