Chelsea confirm Kenedy loan exit

Kenedy loaned out by Chelsea

Chelsea have confirmed the departure of Kenedy to Getafe on a season-long loan. The Brazil international had spent the past year and a half with Newcastle United and he has now taken up a fresh challenge in the Spanish La Liga.

Kenedy, who is capable of playing anywhere on the left side of the pitch, has struggled to secure regular gametime with the Blues since his arrival from Fluminense in 2015 and he has managed just one league appearance since the 2016/17 campaign.

As such, there are no surprises regarding his temporary departure to Getafe, who just missed out on Champions League football last term. A statement on the Blues' official website read: "Kenedy will spend the season playing in Spain’s La Liga having moved to Getafe on a season-long loan."

Aside from Kenedy, Lucas Piazon and Baba Rahman have been loaned out to Rio Ave and Real Mallorca after signing one-year contract extensions at the west London giants.
