LUCAS PIAZON has signed for Braga in Portugal, after amassing seven loan stints in his 10 years as a Chelsea player.

Chelsea signed the then-coveted young Brazilian from Sao Paulo in 2011, but he was only eligible for a work permit to start in January 2012.

Midfielder Piazon technically leaves as Chelsea’s longest-serving player, though he made just three senior appearances for the Blues, and all in 2012.

He has had temporary spells at Malaga, Vitesse Arnhem, Eintracht Frankfurt, Reading, Fulham, Chievo and Rio Ave during his time with Chelsea.

But now the 26-year-old has finally made the permanent move away from west London.

“Lucas Piazon is the new signing for SC Braga,” the Portuguese outfit announced on their official website.
