Chelsea youngster Kenedy has today completed a move to Newcastle till the end of the season.

The Brazilian, 21, has since been coveted by Rafael Benitez and was due to move during the summer but the deal was cut off as Chelsea needed a backup for Marcos Alonso.

Kenedy will spend the rest of the season at St James Park having made five appearances for Chelsea this season.

The versatile left-sided player moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2015 from Fluminense and netted the fastest Premier League goal of that campaign when he opened the scoring in an away game at Norwich after just 39 seconds.

Newcastle are desperate to sign the Brazilian as they are currently 15th in the Premier League table.
