It’s finally been confirmed that 22-year-old Brazilian Kenedy has been signed on loan for the season by Newcastle.
The winger joined the club in January and had a fabulous time of it and scored 2 goals and had 2 assists in his 13 games for the club and helped us finish in 10th place in the Premier League.
Kenedy with new hair color – fabulous signing for Newcastle
The winger has already joined up with the first team squad in Carton House in County Kildare for a week’s training camp.
This is what the player has said:
“I am so happy with this interest from Rafa Benítez, that he came back for me,”
“I want to keep it going, the work that I did here before, for the new season.”
“I have received many, many messages on social media from the fans. They made me feel appreciated, so I wanted to come here in this new season and give everything on the pitch.”
Manager Rafa Benitez added this:
“I’m really pleased to have Kenedy back with us. I’m sure every fan will be happy with this signing.
“Hopefully he can keep playing at the same level that he reached with us last season. I wish him all the best for his time here.”
No word on an option to buy – that we can find at the moment – but a great signing for the club.
