Newcastle fans on Twitter don’t want permanent Kenedy move

This time last year Newcastle fans were excited to see their new loanee from Chelsea, Kenedy, in action. The Brazilian didn’t disappoint either as in his first half a season as a Magpie he shone, scoring twice on his debut against Southampton and doing enough for Benitez to loan him again in the summer.

In the season that’s followed, though, the Brazilian has been woeful. The hard-working creative wideman who was so effective for Benitez in that first six months is nowhere to be seen, and the fans are desperate to see him return to Chelsea. That could be exactly what happens, though, as Kenedy’s parent club has been hit with a two-window transfer ban, and they’ll be keen to keep their players on board.

The news of Chelsea’s ban on bringing new players in will hit the Premier League hard. Over the last few seasons the likes of Bournemouth, Liverpool, Watford, Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Everton and Stoke have all benefitted from signing and loaning young Blues. However, now they can’t sign players the opportunity for players to leave will be greatly restricted, and could possibly cost Kenedy a permanent move to St James Park.

You can read the Geordies’ verdict on Kenedy here:

The Magpies are all clear on their stance on Kenedy and unless he can improve drastically between now and the end of the season they’ll be happy to give up on signing him permanently.
