CONFIRMED! Chelsea announce Brazilian deal done

Chelsea talent Kenedy has moved to Newcastle United on loan until the end of the season, the Blues have announced.

The young Samba star has failed to make an impact on Antonio conte’s side this season and the Italian boss gave the green light for him to make a move away for a few months.

A versatile left-sided player, Kenedy moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2015 from Fluminense and netted the fastest Premier League goal of that campaign

He said on the Sky Sports website:’m so happy with this opportunity at Newcastle,” Kenedy told Newcastle’s officials website.

“They’ve opened the door to me to come here, show my potential and come and play for Newcastle.

“It’s a traditional club and Rafa Benitez is a fantastic, amazing coach.

“Christian Atsu, as well – we trained together at Chelsea and know each other, and he said good things about the club. So it was easy to take this decision.”
