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:
We believe it’s a straight loan. https://t.co/V63Fj11boS

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.
The Chronicle and Sky say it's a straight loan deal for Kenedy with NO option to buy.
The Telegraph, Independent and Standard say there IS an option to buy.
