Chelsea star, Robert Kenedy joins Newcastle United on loan

Premier League sides including Leicester City are keen on El-Mhanni and would jump at the chance to land him, particularly if it's for free at the end of the season, but Newcastle can not let the talent leave their club.

Speaking to Newcastle's official website about the move, the 21-year-old said, "I'm so happy with this opportunity at Newcastle". Kenedy will be ineligible for Newcastle's FA Cup fourth-round clash against Chelsea on Sunday, but could make his debut against Burnley at St James' Park next Wednesday.

Chelsea are expected to soon snap up left-back Emerson Palmieri from Roma, something which is allowing the Blues to sanction Kenedy's loan switch to Newcastle.

"It's a traditional club and Rafa Benítez is a fantastic, wonderful coach".

Kenedy is highly rated at Cobham and by the Chelsea fans but his career has stunted after an initial positive start under Jose Mourinho.

Benitez added: "Kenedy is a player that we have been following since the summer".

"But I think now he is more ready. He played with us many games, and now he can show his potential, going on loan".

Conte hopes Kenedy can follow the example of defender Andreas Christensen, who has established himself as a first-team player at Chelsea after spending two seasons on loan at Borussia Mönchengladbach. We trained together at Chelsea and know each other, and he said good things about the club.

"Surely this is "fake news", we don't sign players", joked a third.

In the age of increasingly weird player signing announcement videos and the race for Twitter interactions, Newcastle United - a team famously shy of making too many signings at the minute - delighted and baffled their fans in equal measure with their latest announcement video.
