Magpies sign Kenedy on loan

Written by Tom Easterby

Newcastle United have completed the signing of Kenedy on loan from Chelsea.

The Brazilian winger – who enjoyed a successful spell on loan at St. James’ Park last term – returns to the club until the end of the 2018/19 season.

Kenedy is well-known to United supporters, having spent half of the 2017/18 season on Tyneside as Newcastle secured a top-ten finish under manager Rafa Benítez.

He joined on loan in January, playing 13 times, scoring twice and winning the FUN88 player of the month award for March.

The former Brazil Under-23 international becomes Newcastle’s third addition of the summer, following the permanent acquisitions of Martin Dúbravka and Ki Sung-yueng.

He has joined up with the rest of the Magpies squad at the club's pre-season camp in Ireland and will train this morning.

"I am so happy with this interest from Rafa Benítez, that he came back for me,” said Kenedy. “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."

Manager Benítez added: "I’m really pleased to have Kenedy back with us. 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."

Twenty-two-year-old Kenedy began his career in his homeland with Fluminense, where he made 31 appearances and scored twice before making a move to Stamford Bridge in August 2015.

He has featured 27 times in all for the Blues, netting three times, while he also spent time on loan at fellow Premier League side Watford in 2016.

"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."
