Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has confirmed Kenedy’s loan with Watford is over.

The 20 year-old striker’s loan has been plagued by injury.

“Kenedy got no playing time in Watford and therefore it was best to take him back and have him work with us. Then we’ll evaluate and make the best decision for him – if he should stay or loaned to another club,” said Conte.

Even Watford manager Walter Mazzarri confirmed that Kenedy was returning.

“Kenedy has returned to Chelsea. This was a player we have not had time to evaluate because he was injured all the time.”
