Kurt Zouma is delighted with his move to Chelsea.
The highly-rated Frenchman signed for Chelsea back in January but was loaned back to St Etienne to continue his development.
But now that he is training with the Blues, he admits he grew up following the career of captain John Terry.
As quoted on the Chelseafc.com website, he said: “My favourite footballers as a kid were John Terry and Mamadou Sakho.
“Terry is a great leader and the perfect example to young players starting out in the game.
“It’s very exciting for me, I’ve always looked up to him as a player and now I just want to learn as much as possible from him.
“I spoke to him briefly and he’s a very nice man.”
