Stoke City defender Kurt Zouma says he sees his future at parent club Chelsea.
Zouma, who was previously voted Chelsea’s young player of the year, signed a five year deal at Stamford Bridge last season and, despite becoming best friends with Stoke’s Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting, he will return to his parent club this summer.
Zouma said: “People know that I’m here for one season and it doesn’t matter what is going to happen after, I hope Stoke are going to stay in the Premier League. My target is to go back to Chelsea, but first do it right here. I don’t want to go down.
“My target is to go back to Chelsea and play. They gave me a chance to go on loan and I spoke with the manager who agreed with that and they helped me a lot from my injury and to find a club where I can play all the time. Everyone knows I am here for one year and then I’ll go back.
“Like the other players, we all have to show the fans we want to stay up. There is no difference to me and the other players, we all have to fight to stay up. I don’t think about Chelsea, I just think about Stoke.”
