Kenedy set to seal season-long loan move to Newcastle

  Kenedy set to seal season-long loan move to Newcastle Chelsea winger Kenedy is closing in on a season-long loan move to Newcastle United, according to reports. According to claims from the Daily Mail, the exciting Brazilian youngster will spend next season on loan with Rafa Benitez’s side after enjoying a strong second half to the last campaign at St James’ Park. Kenedy joined the Magpies on a short-term temporary deal from Chelsea in January and went on to impress, establishing himself as something of a fans’ favourite. However, it was unclear as to whether or not he would return for the 2018/19 season, be it on a temporary or permanent basis. It seems as though Kenedy’s move to Newcastle is set to be confirmed in the near future, though, with the Daily Mail indicating that a deal has been wrapped up. Following such an impressive spell up north, Kenedy was courted by a number of top European clubs, including Bayern Munich and PSG. Chelsea are well-stocked with attacking options and it seems Kenedy is surplus to requirements ahead of next season.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, Kenedy has agreed to return to Newcastle on a season-long loan with the deal set to go through before Maurizio Sarri's appointment is confirmed at Chelsea. Ever since Kenedy 's loan spell came to an end last season

Newcastle United have resigned Brazilian winger Kenedy on a season-long loan from Chelsea after he impressed during a three-month spell in 2017-18.

The 22-year-old former Brazil youth international made 13 Premier League appearances for the Magpies last season, scoring twice to help the club secure 10th place in the table and picking up the club's player of the month award in March.

Kenedy expressed his delight at being reunited with Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez and thanked the club's fans for welcoming him at St James' Park.

  Newcastle reach agreement with Chelsea winger over loan deal Newcastle United have reportedly reached an agreement with Chelsea winger Kenedy regarding a season-long loan deal. According to claims from the Daily Mail, the exciting Brazilian youngster will spend next season on loan with Rafa Benitez’s side after enjoying a strong second half to the last campaign at St James’ Park. Kenedy joined the Magpies on a short-term temporary deal from Chelsea in January and went on to impress, establishing himself as something of a fans’ favourite.

Following such an impressive spell up north, Kenedy was courted by a number of top European clubs, including Bayern Munich and PSG. The winger will join Newcastle for next season, though, as Benitez continues to press ahead with his summer dealings.

Kenedy has joined Newcastle on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season. The Brazilian completed a medical at the club on Tuesday and becomes the Magpies' first signing of the January transfer window.

Chelsea left-back Kenedy has joined Newcastle on loan until the end of the season. The 21-year-old arrived on Tyneside on Monday evening before undergoing medical test on Tuesday.

"I am so happy with this interest from Rafa Benitez, that he came back for me," Kenedy told the club's official website.

"I want to keep it going, the work that I did here before, for the new season.

"I have received many, many messages on social media from the fans. They made me feel appreciated, so I wanted to come here in this new season and give everything on the pitch."

Benitez, who previously added Martin Dubravka and Ki Sung-yueng to his squad for the new campaign, said he hoped to see more of the same from Kenedy

"I'm really pleased to have Kenedy back with us," said Benitez. "I'm sure every fan will be happy with this signing.

"Hopefully he can keep playing at the same level that he reached with us last season.

"I wish him all the best for his time here."

Selling club will let player go to Newcastle on one condition .
Chelsea are ready to sell Kenedy to Newcastle this summer, but only if the Magpies agree to insert a buy-back clause into the deal. The Telegraph report that the Brazilian is keen to complete a permanent move to St James’ Park after a successful loan spell at the club last season. The two clubs have been in talks over a £20 million deal, but Chelsea want to protect themselves. The Blues have been well known to add in buy-back clauses into a number of sales recently following the departures of Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku, both of whom have gone on to have successful careers with other English clubs. After the success that the Belgian duo have enjoyed away from Chelsea, the Blues are keen to ensure the same thing does not happen in the future. Both Nathan Ake and Nathaniel Chalobah reportedly had buy-back clauses included in the deals that saw them move away from Stamford Bridge on a permanent basis. Whilst Chelsea may not see a future at Stamford Bridge for Kenedy, they want to protect themselves from any further embarrassment in the transfer market.
