While the move is not official yet the Mirror this morning is reporting that Newcastle has agreed to sign bad boy Kenedy from Chelsea for a season long loan deal.
The 21-year-old was sent home from Chelsea’s China tour, and we detail what he did in the report we put out earlier today – we don’t want to keep going on about it.
I did some network consulting business in China while in my final years at IBM, and it really helps to know the culture of the country otherwise you can insult your hosts without even realizing it.
And it’s much easier for a youngster like Kenedy to do that unwittingly – which is what happened.
Kenedy is an excellent young player and will bring a bit of class to the Newcastle side.
Kenedy – a very good signing for Newcastle
He will be Rafa’s sixth signing of the summer, and it seems it was an opportunity that came up that Newcastle moved like greased lightning and have already managed to close the deal – according to the Mirror.
