Newcastle United expected to sign Kenedy on another loan, fans react

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.

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.
