Newcastle fans annoyed by snag in Kenedy deal

Newcastle fans are delighted about the capture of Kenedy on loan from Chelsea, but quite a few fans have found a snag to worry about.

Newcastle finally gave the fans what they wanted this week, wrapping up a one-year loan deal for Chelsea’s Kenedy.

The feisty Brazilian was excellent during his loan spell on Tyneside last season, alongside Martin Dubravka who joined permanently earlier this summer.

The Magpies must now switch their attention to signing a new goalscorer, with Dwight Gayle struggling for form and Aleksandar Mitrovic expected to leave the club.

While securing Kenedy without having to pay a transfer fee is great business in the short term, fans are worried that it’s just delaying the inevitable, as they’ll be right back in the same position next summer.

There are no reports to suggest there is a clause to make the deal permanent at the end of the loan, and fans are all bringing it up on Twitter.

You can certainly understand fans’ frustrations, as Mike Ashley loves to bargain hunt, and another successful loan spell for the Brazilian will only up the asking price next summer, pushing him further out of reach.
