Newcastle United are one step closer towards English Premier League safety after a late Ayoze Perez goal was enough to secure a victory at home to Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
The Magpies deserved their victory but having missed a number of chances, fans feared they might have to settle for a point before Perez converted Kenedy’s classy cross just 10 minutes from the end.
Kenedy was a bright spark throughout for Rafa Benitez’s side, his assist coming after he scored a double last time out against Southampton.
Fans are loving the impact he’s made since signing on loan from Chelsea in January and they’re now calling on the club to do the business necessary to sign him permanently this summer.
With first team opportunities at the Blues hard to come by, a move to St James’ Park could be perfect for both the player and the Magpies, giving them something unique in attack.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the situation after Saturday’s match…
Kenedy to Nufc on a permanent deal should happen this summer #Nufc

Fantastic from Kenedy, we need to be keeping him, also clever from Silmani to stay behind the goal line. Fully deserved the win today. #NUFC

I fear we won’t be able to afford Kenedy come the summer, especially if the fat one is still in charge. Such a shame as he has real quality, totally unfazed by the big stage and seems to be flourishing under Rafa, think he would cost £10-15m #nufc

3 points closer to the goal. Please someone get Kenedy to sign for good. Happy for Perez a lot of stick this season but comes up with the goals when we need them. Slimani looked up for it. Howay lads ⚫️⚪️ #NUFC @AyozePG @NUFC_org
