Atsu speaks on Kenedy's move to Newcastle

The 21-year-old Chelsea midfielder finally completed a loan move to St James' Park last week six months after manager Rafa Benitez had missed out on a similar deal. "They know what is going on and then what we have to do is to make sure I don't let them down", Benitez said after Newcastle's 3-0 defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday. I will keep working as hard.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst confirmed in his press conference that Feyenoord are searching for a new striker should Nicolai Jorgensen depart for Newcastle United.

Newcastle are now just one point clear of the relegation zone in the Premier League and they return to action on Wednesday night where they will entertain Burnley desperate for the three points to aid their quest for safety.

'I will do my best on the field and I hope I can help my colleagues to get the team out of this situation'.

Asked if he had spoken to managing director Lee Charnley at Stamford Bridge, Benitez added: "No, we didn't have time".

Kenedy also spoke to Newcastle's former Chelsea winger Christian Atsu before agreeing to head north, but had no hesitation in doing so after hearing what he had to say.

News of the Dutch sides asking price is likely to cast doubt over the move though, with the club's transfer record now standing at just £16m, a fee paid for Michael Owen to Real Madrid back in 2005.

"It's very hard that they will leave", said Benitez, who was angered by the club's failure to strengthen his squad in the Championship a year ago. If he doesn't stay, he will not play.

Asked for an update, Benitez said: "I have no idea at the moment". Still we will see as we have time, and hopefully we can do something.
