The Brazilian winger has seen his loan spell with Flamengo ended prematurely after an injury crisis Stamford Bridge.

Thomas Tuchel only has one left-back available after Ben Chilwell's season-ending knee injury.

Speaking at Rio de Janeiro airport, Kenedy said: "I was taken by surprise. I found out yesterday night around 11 pm. Everything was very fast.

"Chelsea had a contract with Flamengo. They asked me to present myself and I'm presenting myself.

"It was Flamengo that told me. I'm just fulfilling the contract."
