Kenedy Returns To Newcastle United On Loan

Brazilian winger Kenedy has sealed his return to Newcastle United on a season-long loan deal from fellow Premier League side Chelsea.

The 22-year-old had earlier joined the Magpies on a six-month loan in January before scoring two goals in 13 appearances as he helped the North East club steer clear of relegation.

He has now returned to link up with manager Rafael Benitez at the club for the entire duration of the 2018/19 season.

Kenedy has already joined the team’s training camp in the Republic of Ireland.

He’s the club’s third summer signing after goalkeeper Martin Dubravka and midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung were signed earlier in the summer.

On his return to Newcastle United, Kenedy told the club’s website: “I am so happy with this interest from Rafa Benitez, that he came back for me.”

“I want to keep it going, the work that I did here before, for the new season.” He added.

Kenedy joined parent club Chelsea from Brazilian outfit Fluminense in 2015 and has played 27 times for the Blues.
