Kenedy was one of Newcastle United’s standout players in the second half of last season.
The Brazilian moved to St James’ Park from Chelsea in the January transfer window on a temporary spell.
During that time, the left-sided player, who can feature as a full-back or a winger, made 13 Premier League appearances, scoring two goals and creating two assists.

Ever since the transfer window opened, speculation has been rife about a permanent deal for Kenedy.
It seems after some back and forth between both clubs, the two parties have settled on another loan deal.
There have been conflicting reports, but according to the Daily Mail’s head of sport, Lee Clayton, a transfer should be announced this week.
One year loan deal for Kenedy to return to Newcastle will be announced this week. He was a popular signing last season. Rafa Benitez crucial to the deal #NUFC

The Magpies managed to keep themselves in the top flight last season, but Rafael Benitez has a big task on his hands in order to build on their 10th-placed finish.
The club are yet to announce any deal for Kenedy, but this tweet from Lee Clayton has got the fans talking.
You winding us up Lee?

I hope so like. If it doesn’t happen we def need a player of a similar stamp.

great news for #nufc and more importantly for Rafa, he still keeps his budget intact after bringing back an important piece that would have sliced off 20 mill or more of his budge. Can now focus on getting another quality player

There’s been plenty of reports implying this, so not sure why everyone is so quick to dismiss it. Hope we get an option/obligation to buy
