Watford sign Nathaniel Chalobah from Chelsea on five-year deal

Watford sign Nathaniel Chalobah from Chelsea on five-year deal

Chalobah has one year left on contract though it is understood to hold a release clause allowing him to leave for a set fee which is believed to be around £6million. The Blues' offer is a substantial wage increase on his current salary, but Chalobah wants minutes, not money.
