He’s a player Rafa has wanted at Newcastle on loan since last summer but it seems that 21 year-old Kenedy is highly regarded at the London club and there will be no “option to buy” him in the loan contract.
But if he plays well and creates a bond with the Newcastle fans maybe he will want to join Newcastle later in his career – maybe even in the summer?
We expect him to be surprised at the welcome he will get from Newcastle fans – he’s young but looks a very good technical player who we are hoping Rafa will get the best out of him in the remaining games of the season.
Kenedy – arriving at the Benton Training grounds today
With kenedy set tonsign on loan, I’m thinking a attacking 3 of kenedy, Atsu and Murphy behind whoever this mystery striker is #NUFC

Say if by the end of the transfer window we had two new additions in the form of Kenedy and a mysterious striker. Would you be happy? I don’t think I would. Fair enough, This squad works hard for each other but need more class injected into it. Massive few days for #NUFC

Mental how many people fall for the shit that comes out of #NUFC every January due to it being season ticket renewal month. I will be absolutely amazed if we spend anywhere near 20 million on a player. Loans like Kennedy is the only business happening.

With Kenedy all but signed, #nufc will now try to capture Le Havre’s Oswald

I agree with James – think Dummett will stay as left back and Kenedy on the left wing – he looked great there for Chelsea last time out.
Everyone seems to think Kenedy’s coming in as left back cover, but I’ve got a feeling he’ll play him further forward. He didn’t trust Lazaar at full back last year ????? #NUFC

Nothing against Kennedy personally, who for the sake of my beloved #NUFC hope is a success, but Mike Ashley has battered hope so much at the Toon a loan signing from Chelsea is being spruiked as a cause for celebration by some. #ashleyout

Kennedy is up in Tyneside having arrived last night. Deal is likely to be completed today, given the medical goes smoothly.

Kennedy, Gameiro and Schurrle! I’ll take those 3! #NUFC

Can see #nufc going 3 at the back, Dummett going inside, Kennedy and yedlin wing backs

There’s a lot of worth in bringing players on like Kennedy. Firstly they have a desire to not only play but to learn. That desire often sees them push far more which can only be beneficial. As well as this he adds squad depth and aids Rafa moving forward #nufc

Excited about Kennedy!
Need to spend at least another 35/40 million on a striker and GK or it’s not good enough #NUFC
