Once Kenedy passes his medical at Newcastle and maybe that will be until tomorrow we should have the 21-year-old in on loan for the rest of the season.
And Kenedy will be a good signing for Newcastle and help us avoid that dreaded relegation.
And Antonio Conte has verified he will be moving to Newcastle all being well with his medical and he has some good advice for the talented 21-year-old Brazilian.
It seems the Chelsea manager see Kenedy as a long-term player at Chelsea.
Kenedy – young Chelsea player starting loan spell at Newcastle
This is what Conte has said today:
“Yes, I think he is going on loan to Newcastle.”
“We are talking about a young player, with great potential but at this moment in his career, he must play regularly.
“It is a great way for the club, we used same way for Christensen. Now he starts for Chelsea.
“To go to Newcastle, it’s a great challenge for him. It is a great opportunity but he must be ready to fight to play at Newcastle.”
“Last season in the first six months for Watford he struggled to play, but now he is more ready. He played with us many games and he can show his potential.”
Kenedy went on a season-long loan deal at Watford in August of 2016 but he made only one appearance for the Hornets in a 2–0 away defeat against Burnley.
But he struggled with injuries and then manager Walter Mazzarri, confirmed that Kenedy had returned to Chelsea in early December after a disappointing loan spell.
We hope he will not have any injuries in this loan spell and that Rafa can bring out the best in the Brazilian.
He should be a (very) good signing for us.
