The 20-year-old left-sided star has been in talks over a move to the Hornets for the last couple of weeks as he looks to continue his development away from Stamford Bridge.

The deal has now been rubberstamped and he will be hoping to get some regular action under his belt at Vicarage Road.

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.
