Lucas Piazon: Chelsea’s longest-serving player signs four-year contract with Braga | Football News

Chelsea’s longest-serving player Lucas Piazon has left the club after 10 years and just one Premier League appearance.

The attacking midfielder, who is still only 26, has signed a four-year contract with Portuguese team Braga.

Piazon arrived at Chelsea in the summer of 2011 and made a very positive impression during his first season at the club.

He went on to play two League Cup games the following season, before leaving the bench for a single Premier League appearance, in which he had a penalty saved in an 8-0 beating against Aston Villa.

Since then, Piazon has been on loan at seven clubs – in six different countries – over the past nine years.

He played for Malaga in Spain, before moving to Vitesse in Holland and German side Eintracht Frankfurt.

Piazon then returned to England for loan spells with Reading and Fulham, whom he helped secure promotion to the Premier League through the play-offs.

He then spent time with Chievo in Italy and Rio Ave in Portugal.

Piazon will now settle in Portugal, having signed an agreement with Braga which runs until at least 2025.
