Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has signed a new six-year contract at the club but will spend the 2017-18 campaign on loan with Stoke City, the Premier League champions said on Friday.

The 22-year-old France international has made 71 appearances for Chelsea since arriving at Stamford Bridge at the start of 2014-15 season.

"It is fantastic Kurt has chosen to commit his future to Chelsea," Chelsea's technical director Michael Emenalo said in a statement.

"He has shown his talent since joining us three years ago, and has returned from a serious injury with a fantastic attitude.

"Now he has the opportunity to play regularly in the Premier League and we will be monitoring his progress closely while he is at Stoke."

Zouma featured 13 times for Antonio Conte's side last season, having recovered from a knee ligament injury suffered in February 2016.

Chelsea confirm Alvaro Morata capture from Real Madrid

Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

Morata had been expected to join Manchester United but that deal fell through when they signed Romelu Lukaku instead.

The 24-year-old Spain forward was pictured saying goodbye to his teammates and manager earlier in the week.

Morata said: ‘I am so happy to be here. It’s an incredible emotion to be part of this big club. I am looking to work hard, score as many goals as I can and to win as many trophies as possible.’

Technical director Michael Emenalo told Chelsea's official website: ‘We are delighted to complete Alvaro’s signing and welcome him to the club. We believe he can make a great impact for Chelsea and look forward to seeing him in action.

‘Alvaro has proven class at the highest level and his quality will be a huge asset to Antonio and the squad.’
Morata has also played for Juventus and returned to Real after they exercised a buyback clause in 2016, but was unable to nail down regular first-team football. The fee is believed to be around £70m.

Chelsea confirm Tiemoue Bakayoko signing from Monaco

Chelsea have completed the signing of defensive midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco for a reported £40 million.

The 22-year-old, who has signed a five-year deal, is expected to line up alongside fellow France international N’Golo Kante next season.

Bakayoko is Chelsea’s third signing of the summer, joining goalkeeper Willy Caballero and defender Antonio Rudiger at Stamford Bridge.
"I am very happy to be here and to join this great team," he told the club’s official website.

"I have grown up watching Chelsea. Signing was the natural thing for me because it is a club I loved very much in my childhood.
"I am now looking forward to evolving under this fantastic coach and alongside so many great team-mates."

Bakayoko arrived at Monaco from Rennes in 2014, making nearly 100 appearances and helping them win the Ligue 1 title last season.
He played a crucial role in Leonardo Jardim side’s run to the Champions League semi-finals last season, including the winning goal to knock out Manchester City in the last eight.

So impressive were his performances, France boss Didier Deschamps rewarded him with his international debut against Spain in March
His arrival casts doubt on Nemanja Matic’s future in west London, with the Serb heavily linked with a reunion with former Blues boss Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

Tiemoue Bakayoko set to complete Chelsea move - but what will he bring?

Chelsea are closing in on the signing of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco, with the midfielder reportedly set to sign on Friday. But what will he bring to the side?

The Premier League champions have been linked to Bakayoko for some months now, but the deal has been dragging on.

However, despite reports of Manchester United considering a move it is now believed that the deal will be concluded imminently.

Various outlets are reporting that a fee of €45 million (£39.7 million) has been agreed between Chelsea and Monaco and the midfielder should agree terms in the next 48 hours.
The 22-year-old will complete a medical, with Chelsea reportedly unconcerned about a knee injury that required keyhole surgery and leaves the midfielder around six weeks away from full fitness.

His imminent arrival could see Nemanja Matic leave, with both United and Inter Milan mentioned as possible destinations.

The Blues are also reportedly still in talks for Alex Sandro, Alvaro Morata and Danilo as they look to bolster their squad ahead of their upcoming Champions League return.

What will Bakayoko bring?

Bakayoko will bring the support that N'Golo Kante has been craving for some time. He brings energy and the ability to carry the ball from midfield, as well as a knack of popping up with important goals at important moments.

But does this spell the end for Nathaniel Chalobah? Not necessarily.
While much has been made of Bakayoko joining and whether Chalobah may leave, with Watford strongly mentioned as a possible destination, they could actually compliment each other.

The demands on the central midfielders in Antonio Conte's 3-4-3 formation means having four to choose from (Kante, Bakayoko, Chalobah and Cesc Fabregas) makes a good deal of sense.

Chalobah has the intelligence and position discipline to perform a variety of roles in the midfield, whether that be sitting deeper, carrying the ball or acting as the playmaker.

Chelsea have signed Willy Caballero on a free transfer.

Cabellero joined Manchester City in 2014 to serve as a back-up 'keeper to Joe Hart.

With the arrival of Claudio Bravo last season, and Ederson this summer, Caballero has moved to another Premier League title challenger.
Caballero will expect to provide competition to Thibaut Courtois, as Asmir Begovic left Chelsea to join Bournemouth earlier in the summer.

Caballero played 47 games for City in his three seasons, featuring 26 times for Pep Guardiola.
