Watford head coach Walter Mazzarri has confirmed Kenedy has returned early to Chelsea.

The 20-year-old Brazilian joined the Hornets on a season-long loan but was limited to just one appearance off the bench in the defeat at Burnley.

Versatile midfielder Kenedy suffered a knee injury during his brief spell at Vicarage Road and Mazzarri admitted he did not have the chance to impress due to his fitness problems this season.

Mazzarri said: “Kenedy went back to Chelsea. He was a player we never had time to evaluate because he was injured the whole time."
