Chelsea youngster Nathan has joined Portuguese Primeira Liga side Belenenses on loan until the end of the season.

Nathan signed for Chelsea for a reported €6.2million in 2015 from Atletico Paranaense before being shipped out on loan to affiliate club Vitesse.

The Brazilian spent two years in the Eredivisie and was then sent to Ligue 1 side Amiens at the start of the current campaign.

However, he managed to play just nine minutes of Ligue 1 football in his solitary appearance, resulting in his loan move ending at the start of the month.

He will link up with Belenenses - who are 11th in the Primeira Liga - until the end of the campaign, as the 21-year-old looks goes in search of more regular football.
