Chelsea midfielder Kenedy, on loan at Newcastle United, has avoided retrospective action for his off-the-ball challenge on Cardiff City’s Victor Camarasa last Saturday.

The Brazilian winger appeared to kick out at the Spaniard but referee Craig Pawson didn’t show any card.

However, the referee awarded Cardiff a free kick, and as such the incident will not be referred to a disciplinary panel as it was dealt with at the time.

Kenedy had been recently facing a three-match ban for violent conduct, but the Brazilian will not be handed any further punishment.

The 22-year-old endured a poor individual display at the Cardiff City Stadium, failing to complete a single pass in the first half and then missing a penalty in the final minute of stoppage time.

Newcastle ended the game with 10 men, though, since Isaac Hayden was sent off for a challenge from behind on Josh Murphy in the middle of the second half.

Chelsea winger Kenedy will undergo a medical at Newcastle tomorrow ahead of a season-long loan deal, London Evening Standard journalist Simon Johnson revealed tonight.

Chelsea loanee Kenedy, who’s enjoying a fruitful spell at Newcastle United, has confirmed he would be open to discuss a permanent move with Magpies at the end of current Premier League season.

The Brazilian winger told The Daily Mail“I am enjoying my time at Newcastle, but obviously I have a contract at Chelsea. If something occurs then I will be more than happy, it is a good place for me. I like it”.

“Rafa helps me a lot, every day. But the thing I am most thankful for is that he had belief in me and gave me this chance. I never imagined it would have gone so well. They have amazing fans, they are crazy for the team — fanatical, beautiful, I feel privileged to be around them.

“My first goal was an amazing sensation. When I saw the celebration in the stand, that gives you the energy to do whatever it takes.”

Brazilian star Kenedy joins Newcastle United on loan until the end of current season, the Premier League club have confirmed the deal earlier this evening.

“Best of luck to Kenedy” we read on Chelsea’s official Twitter account.

The wing-back, who has reportedly left the club due to the imminent arrival of Emerson Palmieri from AS Roma, told Newcastle United’s official website: “I’m so happy with this opportunity. I’m excited to start today,”

“I’m so happy with this opportunity at Newcastle. They’ve opened the door to me to come here, show my potential and come to play for Newcastle”.

“It’s a traditional club and Rafa Benítez is a fantastic, amazing coach. Christian Atsu as well – we trained together at Chelsea and know each other, and he said good things about the club. So it was easy to take this decision”.

“I’m very grateful to have worked under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea. Now I have the opportunity to work with Rafa Benítez, and I’m happy about that.”

Chelsea and Norwich are still 0-0 at the end of the first half: not a great display by Antonio Conte’s lads, with the Canaries being probably more dangerous with Murphy that missed a great chance on a counter attack at 32′ and Zappacosta clearing a dangerous ball on Lewis right before half-time.

The Blues were not able to shot a single time on goal, with Michy Batshuayi left isolated among Norwich defenders.

The only appreciable effort was a Kenedy‘s shot from outside the box ( 29′) that was deflected in corner, not much to try to win the game in this first 45’.

The Blues have just other 45 minutes to avoid the replay at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have reportedly agreed a deal to loan one of their young stars to Premier League side Newcastle.

Brazilian left winger/back Kenedy, in fact, will move to Rafa Benitez’s side next January in order to improve his playing time and performances.

The Northern Echo reports that the two Premier League sides have agreed terms on a deal for the 21-year-old, but like in the past summer Newcastle will have to wait until Chelsea bring in another player to officially close the loan deal.

“I think for the game against Everton it is a good opportunity to give a chance to young players like Charly Musonda and Kenedy, the Italian manager revealed.
