Newcastle fans confident that they have signed Chelsea winger Kenedy

Reported Newcastle United target Kenedy arrived in the city ahead of a long-awaited loan move from Chelsea on Monday night, and Magpies fans are confident that a deal to bring the 21-year-old to St James’ Park is already done.

Following the 3-1 defeat against runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, the Tyneside outfit have upped their search for new additions before the January transfer window slams shut next Wednesday.

Rafa Benitez’s men lie three points from 10th position – but also only three points off the bottom – and the Spaniard will want to add some quality to his squad before the end of the month, with a move for Kenedy seemingly edging closer.

Newcastle supporters were quick to have their say on the situation, and while one said “welcome to The Toon”, another already believes it is a “done deal”.
