Chalobah leaves Chelsea for Watford

Watford have signed Nathaniel Chalobah from Chelsea for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old midfielder has signed a five-year contract at Vicarage Road, where he previously spent time on loan.

He impressed during that loan spell in the 2012-13 season, making 42 appearances for the Hornets and scoring five goals.

Since then he has been on loan at Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough, Burnley, Reading and Napoli.

In May he finally made his first Premier League start for Chelsea, ironically against Watford, and made 15 appearances for the Blues in total last season.

But he was unable to establish himself as a first-team player at Stamford Bridge and has decided to move on.
