Some good news being reported that Chelsea’s Brazilian left-sided player Kenedy arrived in Newcastle last night to undergo his medical before he signs on loan for the rest of the season.
That’s good (great) news and here’s one of the first pictures of the lad arriving in Newcastle last night as published in the Shields Gazette today.

Brazilian Emerson Palmieri has agreed to a four-year deal and will sign for Chelsea today after successfully undergoing his medical.
The Roma left-back will now allow Kenedy to leave the Blues and come to Newcastle on loan.
The two moves will be coordinated so that Kenedy will sign for Newcastle after Palmieri signs for Chelsea.
The 21-year-old is seen smiling as he arrives at Newcastle and he’ll get a great welcome from our fans.
This lad can be a future star and can help us survive in the Premier League this season.
And if he can help us do that by playing well he will be one of the heroes this season.
It also means he will not play for Chelsea against us next Sunday in the 4th round of the FA Cup.
And Rafa will now have some valuable time to work with him before our next league game at home to Burnley a week tomorrow; Kenedy will be expected to make his Newcastle debut in that game.
The 21-year-old may be a little surprised by the passion for football he will experience at Newcastle.
When this deal goes through we can celebrate.
In the game against Norwich, this lad looked a very good player – in fact the best player on the field.
Hopefully, Kenedy is the first of four players Rafa will bring in before 31st January.
But we’ll take each one as they arrive – but it’s good if Kenedy signs – Rafa has been after him since last summer.
