Sky reporter makes concerning claim on Kenedy’s move to NUFC – Was it too good to be true?

According to Sky Sports’ Keith Downie, Kenedy’s move to Newcastle is actually a ‘straight loan‘ – suggesting there may be nothing in place as of yet to sign the Brazilian permanently after all.

It was reported on several occasions last night that there was an option to buy inserted into the loan deal, with the Telegraph’s Luke Edward’s, the Evening Standard’s Simon Johnson and Martin Hardy all saying so, however those claims may turn out to be premature.

Here’s what Sky’s Keith Downie has had to say this morning when asked if there was an option to buy:

The Chronicle have confirmed that his medical is already underway, so he looks certain to be playing his football at St James’ Park for at least another year, however Lee Ryder suggests that Newcastle and Chelsea are yet to agree upon any fee that would see him sign permanently at the end of the loan.

Let’s hope something gets sorted out, but, for now, I’m just happy we’ll have him back for another season.

  1. You mean we turn into an “Exceptional” player and Chelski can charge what they like for him.
    …sounds like a bummer to me.
