Newcastle United have struck a deal with Chelsea over a loan move for Kenedy.

With 549 minutes and one goal for Chelsea in the Premier League in 2015/16, then only another 75 league minutes for the Blues and 15 minutes on loan at Watford last season, fair to say his career wasn't on an upward curve.

The Brazilian was sent home from Chelsea's pre-season tour of China after posting a disparaging video on his Instagram account.

The Brazil U20 worldwide had a spell at Watford last season but made just one appearance.

The 21-year-old arrived at Chelsea from Brazilian club Fluminense in summer 2015 and instead of becoming another member of the loan brigade from the get-go, he was integrated into the first-team instead.

Former Liverpool boss Benitez has endured of hard summer, having been frustrated in his attempts to bolster a squad that won The Championship last season.

Chelsea were forced to issue an apology for Kenedy's actions.

Chinese media accused him of xenophobia and racism.

Kenedy of Chelsea passes the ball as Angel Di Maria of PSG closes in.

Chelsea want Kenedy to gain more first-team experience away from the club.

His behaviour does not represent the entire team and does not align with the club's high expectations and strict requirements of its young players. Everyone at Chelsea Football Club has the utmost respect and admiration for China and loves our Chinese fans.

"I'm very happy to complete my transfer to Chelsea". We must have a game plan and try and stick to it'.
