Ahead of the new football season, Chelsea’s Brazilian attacker Kenedy, who can also play as a wing-back, has joined La Liga club Granada on loan.

The Brazilian made 20 appearances for the Blues in his debut season at Stamford Bridge but has only made 7 appearances for Chelsea since then as he has spent more time out on loan.

Kenedy’s loan spell at Granada will be his fifth loan spell since he joined Chelsea.

The 24 year old spent last season on loan at Getafe, helping the La Liga club finish in the top half of the table and even reach the second knockout round of the Europa Leauge, dispatching Hakim Ziyech’s Ajax in the process in the Round of 32.

Before his loan spell at Getafe last season, Kenedy had two loan stints with Newcastle and one with Watford.

Kenedy joined Chelsea for £6.3million in 2015 and has two years left on his Chelsea contract.
