Chelsea midfielder Kenedy is undergoing a medical in Spain ahead of a possible season-long loan move to Getafe.

The Brazilian, who is in the final year of his contract, spent the last 18 months on loan at Newcastle and despite featuring in Chelsea's pre-season, has failed to break into Frank Lampard's first-team squad.

Kenedy made 28 appearances for Newcastle in all competitions last season, scoring one goal.

The 23-year-old had previously been linked with a move to Serie A side Sassuolo.

Chelsea paid Fluminense £6.3m in 2015 for the former Brazil U20 international.

Rahman joins Real Mallorca on loan

Meanwhile, Chelsea defender Baba Rahman has moved on loan to Spanish club Real Mallorca after signing a one-year contract extension at Stamford Bridge.

The left-back, who joined the Blues from German side Augsburg in the summer of 2015, is now tied to the Premier League club until 2022. He will remain in La Liga for the duration of the 2019-20 campaign.

Rahman made his Chelsea debut in a 4-0 Champions League win over Maccabi Tel Aviv in September 2015 and has played 23 times for the club in all competitions.

Mallorca are back in the Spanish top flight having been promoted via the play-offs last season.
