New details emerge on Brazilian midfielder Kenedy’s proposed move from Chelsea to Newcastle

News broken late last night that Newcastle were set to sign Chelsea’s Kenedy on a season-long loan, and it has been reported today that the deal WILL NOT include an option to buy for the Brazilian.

Newcastle’s official media partner The Mirror claimed a deal had been struck last night and those rumours have since been backed up by local journalists at The Chronicle.

Since then, Sports writer for ITV and The Guardian Kristan Heneage confirmed there was no option to buy for Kenedy when assessing the pros and cons of the signing:

The fact that it’s only a loan deal says a lot, suggesting Chelsea are keen to see how he develops and are currently reluctant to let him leave for good.

The 21-year old has played 22 times for Chelsea since arriving for £6.3m from Fluminense in 2015 and has scored 2 goals, with the Brazilian able to play as a left-wing back or left winger.

He spent last season on loan at Watford, however made just one appearance for the Hornets after a several injury problems.

  1. An option too buy or not we should still do the deal. We need players in and if its loan deals so be it .
