Toffees boss Marco Silva revealed in a press conference ahead of Everton's Premier League opener against Wolves that Zouma's deal does not contain a permanent option.

The deal for Zouma was also expected after a deal sheet was submitted, but it took until Friday afternoon for confirmation, with the Frenchman becoming Everton's seventh signing of the summer.

"It's nearly done, not official but nearly", the Everton boss said. "We'll wait for a few hours and see what we'll do but it's nearly done", Silva told reporters.

'It's time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market.

Disney Releases New Sneak Peek For "Ralph Breaks The Internet"
Given that Vanellope comes from a racing game, it's nice to see that at least that aspect will make its way into the story. Reilly as Ralph , and Sarah Silverman as Vanellope, Ralph Breaks the Internet opens in US theaters on November 21, 2018 .

He becomes Everton's eighth summer signing following Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes and Bernard's arrival at Goodison Park on Thursday.

Newly-promoted Fulham brought in five new players, including Marseille midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa for a club-record £30m. "Of course at his moment it looks stronger but we have to work with all of them and gel everything and put them in our way to adapt them as soon as possible".

It also means that Silva has nearly completely overhauled his defence after allowing Luke Garbett, Ramiro Funes Mori and Ashley Williams to depart. While a €60 million buy-back clause seems extremely high, if Mina reaches the heights many predict, the clause would represent a canny piece of business. Everything is the same, even the number of central defenders is the same. "It is a new league for me, the beginning is always tough but I am sure the coach and my new team-mates will help me and I am looking forward to a great season".

"He has a different profile to the other players we have in that position".
