The 24-year-old Ghana international is heading north to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms after the two clubs agreed a deal which will see him spend the rest of the season at St James’ Park.

Atsu joined the Blues in a £3.5million switch from Porto in September 2013, but is yet to make a senior appearance for the club and has been loaned out to Vitesse Arnhem, Everton, Bournemouth and Malaga since his arrival.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has told Atsu he does not figure in his plans this season and Atsu will be hoping to do enough to earn a permanent switch to St James’ Park.
