'Done deal and here-we-go': Fabrizio Romano has exciting update for West Ham fans
West Ham United have all-but sealed the signing of Kurt Zouma from Chelsea, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Hammers have been heavily linked with the France international for a number of weeks now.
Although Spurs were reportedly also eyeing Zouma, it looks as though West Ham have won the race for his services.
According to Romano, the paperwork between the Hammers and Chelsea has now been completed.
Zouma reportedly completed his medical earlier this morning, and personal terms were also agreed.
All that’s left now is the final agents’ details, and then the move will be official, added Romano.
