Reliable reporter clears up uncertainty surrounding Kenedy’s move from Chelsea to NUFC

According to Simon Johnson – Chelsea’s reporter for the Evening Standard – there is no clause that will see Kenedy join Newcastle permanently next summer – however NUFC will have the ‘first option’ to discuss a price for him at the end of his loan.

This appears to clear up the situation regarding the nature of Kenedy’s second spell at St James’ Park after quite a bit of uncertainty on that front this morning.

It was initially claimed that the loan deal WOULD include an option to buy at the end of it, but it emerged from Sky and the Chronicle this morning that it was in fact just a ‘straight loan’.

Simon Johnson appears to have cleared up the situation, however, posting the following tweet to clarify the Chelsea winger’s situation ahead of his medical today:

It’s not ideal, but I for one am just happy to have him back for at least another season.

If he performs very well then there’s a real risk we’ll be priced out of move next summer, but we’ll worry about that if it comes to it.

For now, let’s just enjoy the fact he’ll be back playing in black and white next season!

  1. He also said NUFC initially asked for a permanent move but couldn’t meet the asking price. If Ashley says he can’t afford a reported £20 million now it indicates there won’t be much more major incoming transfer activity don’t you agree?
