Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has taken to social networking site Twitter to wish Aston Villa youngster Jordan Amavi a speedy recovery.

Amavi, who joined Premier League side Villa from French club Nice in the summer transfer window, has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old left-back suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury during the France Under-21 side’s 1-0 victory over their Northern Ireland counterparts on Thursday.

France international centre-back Zouma, who is also just 21 years of age, has wished his compatriot a speedy recovery on Twitter.

The former Saint-Etienne youngster has sent the following message to Amavi on the social networking site which when translated from French reads: “Good recovery. We are together….”

Amavi has made 10 appearances in the Premier League this season, creating seven chances in the process.

The French youngster has a pass accuracy of 79% and a shot accuracy of 50%, and has won 20 headers, 25 dribbles and 30 tackles.

Villa are at the foot of the Premier League table at the moment with just five points from 12 matches, five points behind 17th-place Newcastle United.
