Chelsea are reportedly poised to send Kenedy on loan to Newcastle.

Chelsea have already loaned 25 players out to other clubs this summer, and wide man Kenedy is set to become number 26, with The Mirror reporting that he will join Newcastle United.

The likes of Kurt Zouma, Tomas Kalas, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Izzy Brown and Tammy Abraham have all been sent out on loan for first-team experience, but Chelsea's plans to farm players out on loan will continue.

On Wednesday night, The Mirror reported that Chelsea have agreed to send Kenedy out on loan to Newcastle United, where he will work under former Blues boss Rafael Benitez.

Kenedy, 21, joined Chelsea from Fluminense in his native Brazil back in 2015, and he has so far notched two goals in 22 first-team appearances for the the Premier League champions, but he is already entering a key stage of his career.

Kenedy, who can play at left wing backback or on the left wing, was loaned out to Watford last season, but was sent back in December after making just one appearance in all competitions, and he earned just two games for Chelsea after that.

This summer, Kenedy was sent home from Chelsea's pre-season tour of China after controversial social media posts, and it's no surprise to see manager Antonio Conte decide to send him out on loan, with a move to Newcastle understood to be imminent.

Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to air their thoughts, and many are far from pleased, suggesting that loaning Kenedy out will be a big mistake given the lack of depth in Conte's squad right now.

Others called the decision to send Kenedy out on loan 'lunacy', but did acknowledge that this is a great opportunity for Kenedy to play first-team football and show off his talent in the Premier League on a consistent basis.

Do you think Kenedy is a good signing for Newcastle?
