Some brilliant news has emerged in the last few moments, with it being confirmed that Kenedy is now on his way to Tyneside to complete a move to Newcastle – with him set to join on a loan deal which WILL include an option to buy.
The Brazilian is set to sign a season-long loan deal with the club and Lee Ryder has confirmed that the deal could even be announced tomorrow if he passes his medical.

There had been ‘fears’ that it would only be loan deal, but to make matters even better, both the Telegraph’s Luke Edwards and Martin Hardy have confirmed that the deal will include an option to buy at the end of it.
As reported last week, Kenedy deal is almost done for #nufc. He wants to come back. It will be a loan with an option to buy at the end of it. Great news as and when it’s confirmed

How much we’ll have to pay to sign him on a permanent deal is not yet known, but either way, this is great news for both Benitez and us NUFC fans.
Here’s hoping he’s the first of many this month!
