Chelsea Send Batshuayi, Zouma Out On Loan

Chelsea have sent Michy Batshuayi and Kurt Zouma out on a season loan to Spanish club Valencia and Everton respectively.

Batshuayi spent part of last season on loan at German club Borussia Dortmund, scoring nine times in 14 appearances while Zouma spent last season on loan at Stoke City for whom he played 34 league games.

Batshuayi joined Chelsea in July 2016 for a fee in the region of £33m and has scored 19 times in 53 games. His departure will leave Alvaro Morata, Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham as Chelsea’s recognised strikers.

Batshuayi made three appearances for Belgium at the World Cup in Russia this summer, scoring after coming off the bench in the 5-2 group-stage victory over Tunisia.

Zouma on his part moved to Chelsea in 2014 and has won the Premier League twice and League Cup title.

    Better to send wasteful Morata out on loan and give Batshuayi a chance to prove himself.
