Brazilian forward Kenedy has switched from Chelsea to Watford on a year-long loan until the end of the season.
Sky Sports News HQ reported on August 14 that the 20-year-old left-sided star was in talks over a move to the fellow Premier League club to continue his development.
He joined the Blues from Brazilian side Fluminense in a £6.7m deal last summer and immediately secured a work permit before featuring 20 times for Chelsea last season.
The Brazil U20 international was used more by interim boss Guus Hiddink towards the end of Chelsea's previous, stuttering campaign but new manager Antonio Conte has decided he is currently surplus to requirements.
Kenedy was brought through the Fluminense academy and is considered one of Brazil's brightest prospects.
