Reports say Chelsea will send Brazilian left-sided player and summer controversy courter Kenedy on loan to Newcastle United this season.

Kenedy made just two PL appearances last season, one for Chelsea and another on loan to Watford, after breaking through under Jose Mourinho in 2015-16.

The left wing/left wing back played 20 times that season, 14 of those in the Premier League, notching a goal in the 39th second of a match against Norwich City.

Kenedy was sent home from Chelsea’s trip to China for making a pair of offensive posts on Instagram.
