Antonio Conte reveals Kenedy set for loan move to Newcastle United

Chelsea midfielder Kenedy was undergoing a medical on Tyneside on Tuesday morning as he closed in on a loan move to Newcastle.

"I think there is this window for sure, in 31 days it's not simple to be faced with this situation [trying to strengthen the squad], particularly as in every team there are players who feel they can change a team".

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.

The centre-back's long-term future at Stamford Bridge came under question but he returned to the Premier League champions in the summer.

"As you know very well, after this question about Kenedy, if the club decides to loan one player, they have to decide whether to buy another player or work with a young player, like Sterling from the academy".

Kenedy was spotted at Newcastle train station on Monday evening, arriving in the north east after being given the green light by manager Antonio Conte.

"At this moment in his career he needs to play with regularity and I think going to Newcastle is a great challenge for him".

"But I think now he is more ready".

"It is a good way for the club and we used it in the same way for Christensen and now he is a Chelsea player and always playing in the starting eleven".

He has made just five appearances this season, impressing most recently in last week's FA Cup victory over Norwich.

He must be ready to fight to play in Newcastle. "It will be better not only for Chelsea, but every team [when window closes]".
