Chelsea loanee facing early January recall from Watford

There have been quite a few loan success stories so far this season, but when you have well north of 30 players out on loan, there are bound to be a few failures.  One of the more disappointing ones has been 20-year-old Kenedy's time at Watford.

We figured the skillful yet tenacious winger would be a great fit under new Watford coach Walter Mazzarri, either as an attacker or a wing-back, but so far, the Brazilian has played a grand total of 15 minutes in one substitute appearance to his name.  In what should thus come as no surprise to anyone, accoording to local sports magazine WD Sport, Chelsea are on the verge of recalling Kenedy in January, cutting short his season-long loan agreement.

Kenedy has been slowed by a knee injury as well recently that even had him training back at Cobham as a standard part of his recovery, but overall, his loan has been a giant waste of time.  He'd almost have a greater chance of getting minutes at Chelsea (he could conceivably be a decent backup at left wing-back) than at Watford at the moment!

So, yes, let's bring him back in January and figure what's next.
