Revealed: 92% of Newcastle fans would prefer Kenedy over Andros Townsend

Newcastle United fans have voted overwhelmingly in favour of signing Chelsea winger Kenedy instead of Andros Townsend after they were linked with moves for both players recently.

The Guardian reported last week that the Magpies were interested in a £20m move for Crystal Palace winger Townsend, with The Evening Chronicle quoting a similar fee for Kenedy this summer.

That figure would make either player Newcastle’s record signing, but the St James’ Park side know they need to spend significantly in the transfer window if they’re to build a squad that can improve on their 10th placed finish last term.

Both players have spent similar amounts of time at the club, but for Newcastle fans there is only one choice when it comes to who they should sign, and it isn’t 26-year-old Townsend.

A massive 92% of respondents to a poll we published at the weekend believe that they should make a move for Kenedy instead of the 13-cap England international.
