Sky Sports has been leading this story since 8:00 pm last night when the news broke that Newcastle and Chelsea had finally agreed terms of a loan deal to take Kenedy to Newcastle for next season.
The Brazilian has now completed his medical and we should expect the announcement to come from Newcastle very shortly.
This is a terrific signing for the club.
However, there is some doubt about whether we have managed to get an “option to buy” in the contract – with different things being reported over the last 15 hours or so.
Here’s the Sky announcement on their Twitter feed.
