Loads of Newcastle fans have been giving their verdict on one journalist’s surprising suggestion, and it’s not good news for summer signing Kenedy.
Northern football correspondent Simon Bird has suggested a radical January shake-up at Newcastle, a shake-up that would involve sending Kenedy back to Chelsea.
According to his report, the Magpies are in desperation mode now, and he believes it could be time to ditch the underperforming Brazilian.

After a brilliant spell on Tyneside last season, the young winger has managed just one assist so far this campaign, and some of his performances have been downright pathetic.
He put in one of the worst individual displays you will ever see in the draw at Cardiff earlier this season, and Bird thinks his departure could open the door for a more successful loan star, like Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Fans are having their say on the report, and while there are more than a few sticking up for their Brazilian wing wizard, loads are calling for his head, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Return to Chelsea and take Loftus Cheek in stead

I’d happily send Kenedy back to Chelsea if it meant Rafa could bring in a more effective MF player to #nufc. Kenedy’s been a huge disappointment. Not really up for a fight.

Nop. See you later Kenedy. We need fighters who are going to graft this season out. He isn’t fighting for us. He is fighting for his Chelsea future . And that isn’t looking great !

Based on his potential it doesn’t make sense.
Based on his performances it makes perfect sense.
Unfortunately, we have no time so the latter it is!#NUFC
