Antonio Conte reacts to Kenedy's loan move to Newcastle

Kenedy has made just five appearances for Chelsea this season

However, the Chelsea manager admits he could decide to blood a youngster into the Blues team instead of dipping into the transfer market.

Newcastle United are closing in on finalising their deal to loan Chelsea man Kenedy for the rest of the season, according to The Daily Mail. However, with Chelsea's imminent deal for Roma left-back Emerson Palmieri and the emergence of Marcos Alonso, Kennedy has been deemed surplus to requirements for the remainder of this season at least.

Asked about Kenedy, Conte said: "I think he is going on loan to Newcastle".

Stanislas has also provided 13 assists in that time, but Newcastle, given their current predicament, are in need of a player who is capable of making an instant impact by scoring regularly and they can ill afford to bring in somebody who only performs well in patches.

Kenedy has made only five appearances this season and his only loan move since joining Chelsea was an unsuccessful spell with Watford that was cut-short by injury.

"It is a great way for the club, we used same way for Christensen".

"For sure we are talking about a young player with great potential, for his career he needs to play with regularity". Now he starts for Chelsea.

Kenedy's ability to play in any position on the left will be a huge boost for Newcastle, who are trying to strengthen their squad to ensure they stay in the Premier League.

Chelsea are hunting a tall striker so which giant targetmen are available?

"I am ready for both options".
