Kenedy is expected to complete a loan move from Chelsea to Newcastle later today.

A deal has been in the offing for some time and the Brazilian is poised to finalise his move to the north east. 

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez was close to signing him during the summer transfer window and remained interested.

The move will give Kenedy, 21, the chance to play first-team football for the remainder of the campaign as his first-team chances at Chelsea have been limited. 

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