Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has insisted that he has no regrets over his move to Stamford Bridge, reports the Daily Star. 

Zouma was linked with a number of England's elite clubs, including the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City, but opted to join Jose Mourinho's side in January of this year. 

And, despite having had to play second fiddle to experienced duo John Terry and Gary Cahill this season, Zouma has revealed that he's happy at the club, and wants to bring silverware to the Bridge.

Happy at Chelsea 

The centre-half told reporters: "I feel very well, I am very happy to be here. We have a very good and strong team. We are working very hard to win trophies.

"I am making progress when I play, when the coach gives me a chance. I am also learning from very good players in John Terry and Gary Cahill.

"We have a lot of games to play this season and when I have my chance, I try to be my best and play a very good game.

"Before I played in France and this is very different for me. I hope I will play a lot of games in the Premier League, it’s a good League. I am enjoying it."

It may not be easy for Zouma to replace the likes of Terry and Cahill at the heart of the club's defence, but he may well prove a key player for the club over the coming years, as the Blues target long term success. 

United & Arsenal must be disappointed 

There's no doubt about it, though, Premier League duo Manchester United and Arsenal must be disappointed that they missed out on the player's signature. After all, both sides have struggled with injury throughout the course of the season so far. 

Manchester United, under Dutch boss Louis van Gaal, have looked extremely fragile at the back, with the likes of Phil Jones, Jonny Evans and Co. all struggling to maintain their fitness. Arsenal, on the other hand, have endured something fairly similar throughout the course of the season so far, with many expecting that the Gunners will add to their options in 2015. 

Zouma, meanwhile, has only featured for the Blues on a couple of occasions, but he appears to be happy with the way things are going under the guidance of Mourinho. The youngster will be hoping to feature this weekend for the Premier League table-toppers as they play host to strugglers QPR.
