Kenedy to have Newcastle medical ahead of season-long loan from Chelsea

Kenedy will return to Newcastle United on loan, according to a report.

The 22-year-old spent the second half of last season with Rafa Benitez's side, scoring two goals in 13 appearances as he helped them to Premier League survival.

Chelsea midfielder Kenedy is close to officially joining Newcastle United on a season-long loan after reportedly completing his medical.

Kenedy joined Chelsea almost three years ago from Brazilian side Fluminense, but has played just 27 times for the club.

Rafael Benitez is keen to re-sign the Brazilian winger, but only a loan deal looks like a viable option for the Magpies as Chelsea quote a high price for the loan star.

The Colombian has great pace and power to his game, something that could see him solve the striker problem at St James' Park next season and thrive in the Premier League.

The uncertainty around Chelsea's managerial situation has meant it has been unclear who would be loaned out by the Blues this summer. But Kenedy would still prefer Newcastle for there he could play a full season on the pitch rather than on the bench.
