Kenedy: Newcastle sign Brazilian midfielder on season-long loan

Sidney Guerrero | 13 July, 2018, 07:32

Following the confirmation of the signing of Kenedy on a season-long loan, my thoughts have quickly turned to who we could sign next.

Newcastle United have re-signed Kenedy on loan from Chelsea.

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.

Kenedy becomes Newcastle's third signing of the summer, following the additions of Martin Dubravka 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.

Reacting to his recent move, Kennedy said that: "I am so happy with this interest from Rafa Benitez, that he came back for me".

Barcelona sign defender Lenglet from Sevilla
The Catalan giants announced the signing on their website and revealed he will sign a five-year deal with a €300 million (£265 million) buyout clause.

This news sent a lot of Magpies fans into party mode with one claiming that their side was now going to win the league, while another stated on Twitter that they were absolutely buzzing about Kenedy joining.

The Brazilian was a popular figure at St James' Park, with many fans urging the club to re-sign the player this summer.

A striker seems like the most obvious choice, but with the club struggling to get a deal done for Nice's Alassane Plea, I think we could perhaps turn our attention towards improving our midfield options. "They made me feel appreciated, so I wanted to come here in this new season and give everything on the pitch".

He played 13 times for Newcastle last season, scoring twice.

With no prospect of playing time at Chelsea, Kenedy has chose to go out on loan again, returning to Newcastle for the duration of the season - but there appears to be just one problem with the move.
