Newcastle United confirm loan signing of Chelsea defender Kenedy

Newcastle United confirm loan signing of Chelsea defender Kenedy”

Newcastle have announced the loan signing of Chelsea winger Kenedy until the end of the season.

The Brazil youth global returned to Stamford Bridge last January after an ill-fated spell at Watford, but speaking at a press conference on Tuesday [23 January], Conte explained the 21-year-old is now better equipped for a temporary spell away from the club.

Per Goal, he said: "He needs to play regularly and to go to Newcastle is a great challenge for him".

Antonio Conte confirmed Brazilian youngster Kenedy will be allowed to join Newcastle United on loan, as the Chelsea coach looks forward to the close of the transfer window. They are now 15th ahead of this weekend's trip to Chelsea in the FA Cup, when Kenedy will be ineligible to play against his parent club.

Kenedy has not featured in the Premier League this season, with all five of his appearances for Chelsea coming in cup competitions.

"I'm so happy with this opportunity at Newcastle", Kenedy told Newcastle's officials website.

"It's a traditional club and Rafa Benitez is a fantastic, unbelievable coach".

"It's not simple, but I must work with my players because every day they show me great personality". It's a good move for the club, we use the same way for Christensen and now he is a Chelsea player and is almost always in the starting XI. "So it was easy to take this decision". "We welcome him to Newcastle United", said the 57-year-old gaffer.

Conte hopes Kenedy can follow the example of defender Andreas Christensen, who has established himself as a first-team player at Chelsea after spending two seasons on loan at Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Kenedy joined Chelsea from Fluminense in 2015 and made 18 appearances in his debut campaign, but he agreed a temporary switch to Watford for the 2016-17 campaign.
