It took a couple of says to get done but Newcastle have announced 22-year-old Brazilian winger Kenedy on loan for the season.
And our fans have turned to Twitter to welcome the lad back who made a huge difference for us last season and he also now joins goalkeeper Martin Dubravka who was also on loan this season and was great too.
Rafa Benitez welcomes Kenedy – in Ireland
Buzzing about Kenedy coming back to SJP! More than makes up for last night #NUFC

If Kenedy has a class season, he’ll end up being worth a hell of a lot more than the option to buy fee we were probably quoted?! #NUFC

Getting Kenedy back is brilliant. Don’t get me wrong but our squad is EXACTLY the same as what finished last season plus Ki. (Merino soon to be out) Still need a striker, no10 and a full back IMO. #nufc

Delighted to see Kenedy back but still struggling to understand why we haven’t agreed an option to buy at the end. Chelsea are happy to sell by all accounts and makes no sense for us to have to go back into market to replace him next summer #NUFC

? Some people are never happy.. we’ve just got Kenedy back for a full season & alright it’s a loan, but we get first refusal at the end of it. Would you rather we didn’t get him & panic bought in the last week ?????? #nufc #logic
