Newcastle United have reportedly reached an agreement with Chelsea winger Kenedy regarding a season-long loan deal.
According to claims from the Daily Mail, the exciting Brazilian youngster will spend next season on loan with Rafa Benitez’s side after enjoying a strong second half to the last campaign at St James’ Park.
Kenedy joined the Magpies on a short-term temporary deal from Chelsea in January and went on to impress, establishing himself as something of a fans’ favourite.
However, it was unclear as to whether or not he would return for the 2018/19 season, be it on a temporary or permanent basis.
It seems as though Kenedy’s move to Newcastle is set to be confirmed in the near future, though, with the Daily Mail indicating that a deal has been wrapped up.
Following such an impressive spell up north, Kenedy was courted by a number of top European clubs, including Bayern Munich and PSG.
The winger will join Newcastle for next season, though, as Benitez continues to press ahead with his summer dealings.
