Chelsea’s longest-serving player Lucas Piazon has left the club after 10 years and only one Premier League appearance.
The attacking midfielder, who is still only 26, has signed a four-year contract with Portuguese side Braga.
Piazon arrived at Chelsea in the summer of 2011 and made a very positive impression in his first season at the club.
He continued to play in two league cup matches the following season before coming off the bench for a single Premier League appearance, having a late penalty saved during an 8-0 thrashing by Aston Villa.
Since then, Piazon has been on loan at seven clubs – in six different countries – for the past nine years.
He played for Malaga in Spain before going to Vitesse in the Netherlands and the German side Eintracht Frankfurt.
Piazon then returned to England for loan spells with Reading and Fulham, who he helped earn promotion to the Premier League via play-offs.
He continued to spend time with Chievo in Italy and Rio Ave in Portugal.
Piazon will now settle in Portugal after signing an agreement with Braga that runs until at least 2025.
