Brazil’s Globo Esporte report they’ve been able to confirm Kenedy is signing for Newcastle United.

After reports in England about the possible transfer, Globo Esporte, a big media outlet in Brazil, contacted the Chelsea player’s entourage who were willing to confirm the transfer is happening.

Not only that, Kenedy is said to be on his way to Newcastle United for a medical with Rafael Benitez’s club.

With Chelsea signing Emerson Palmieri from AS Roma, a deal which is considered done according to the Italian media, it’s given the opportunity for Kenedy to leave the Premier League champions.

Chelsea are also looking to sign Emerson’s Roma teammate Edin Dzeko, and talks are said to be going well on that too.

The fullback is set to sign for Newcastle on a loan deal, with it being reported the club will pay for the move.

Kenedy put in a good performance for Chelsea against Norwich City recently, being named Man of the Match.
