Kenedy's career in pictures

Samba star Kenedy arrived at St. James' Park on Tuesday - and immediately promised the Newcastle fans plenty of Brazilian flair.

The left-sided defender or midfielder has signed on loan for the rest of the season from current Premier League champions Chelsea, having started his career in his homeland.

And the 21-year-old has enjoyed some memorable moments already - with Rafa Benítez hoping many more will come in black and white. Here, we take a pictorial look at his career so far...

The Santa Rita do Sapucaí born player represented Brazil at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in 2013

He made his professional debut for Fluminense and scored his first senior goal against Bahia in May 2014

Kenedy quickly established himself as one of Brazilian football's brightest young talents...

... and was signed by Premier League giants Chelsea in the summer of 2015

It didn't take him long to get off the mark for the Blues - he netted his first goal in a League Cup tie at Walsall in his first start for the club in September 2015

He featured regularly in his first season at Stamford Bridge, making 14 Premier League appearances that term
