​Chelsea winger Kenedy poised to join Newcastle

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed that Newcastle are likely to be successful in their bid to take Brazilian winger Kenedy for the rest of the season.

"I think he is going on loan to Newcastle," said Conte. "He needs to play regularly and to go to Newcastle is a great challenge for him. It is a great way for the club, we used same way for Christensen. Now he starts for Chelsea.

"It is a great opportunity but he knows that he has to be ready to fight to play for Newcastle.

"Last season in the first six months for Watford he struggled to play, but now he is more ready.

"He played with us many games and he can show his potentiality."
