Kenedy has been spotted at Chelsea’s training centre in recent weeks which led to speculation that his loan deal with Watford has been cut short.
Cesc Fabregas also welcomed back the Brazilian on Instagram but there was no official confirmation from Chelsea or Watford about the return of the 20-year-old Brazilian.
Watford boss Walter Mazzarri has now confirmed Kenedy has returned to Chelsea due to fitness problems that saw the Brazilian make just one appearance as a substitute.
“Kenedy went back to Chelsea,” Mazzarri said.
“He was a player we never had time to evaluate because he was injured the whole time.”
