Nathaniel Chalobah has sealed a permanent return to Watford from Chelsea, the Hornets are delighted to confirm.

The England Under-21 international midfielder has signed a five-year deal at Vicarage Road and joins for an undisclosed fee.

Chalobah has played 97 times for England at various youth levels, and he was a key part of the Under-21s’ recent run to the semi-final of the European Championships.

The 22-year-old excelled during 42 appearances while on loan with the Hornets during the 2012/13 season, scoring five goals.

Since then he has spent temporary spells with Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough, Burnley, Reading and Napoli, before returning to the first-team fold at Stamford Bridge last season.

He featured 15 times for Premier League champions Chelsea during 2016/17, making his first league start for the Blues against Watford back in May.

There'll be an exclusive interview with Chalobah at watfordfc.com soon.
