Sky Sports – Ex-Mag Kenedy ‘undergoing medical’ in Spain ahead of Chelsea exit

As revealed by Sky Sports, ex-NUFC loan man Kenedy is currently undergoing a medical at Getafe ahead of a move to the La Liga side.

A season-long loan move to Spain appears to be in the offing, however it had looked like the Brazilian would spend the season with Championship side Reading just a few weeks ago.

That deal fell through, but it seems he’s set for yet another loan move after spending the last 18 months on Tyneside – a spell that ended badly despite his promising start.

Kenedy featured in Chelsea’s pre-season programme, but it seems he is not in Frank Lampard’s plans at Stamford Bridge – and that seems unlikely to change given he’s now in the final year of his contract.

The 23-year-old was tipped to join Serie A side Sassuolo after his proposed move to Reading failed to materialise, but it looks like he’ll be joining ex-Mag Joselu in Spain over the coming year.

Hopefully he turns things around and shows what he’s capable of in La Liga, however it’s fair to say we dodged a bullet here when you consider we were looking at a £20m permanent deal just last summer.

One thought on “Sky Sports – Ex-Mag Kenedy ‘undergoing medical’ in Spain ahead of Chelsea exit

  1. To be fair Olly we were never going to buy him, an Ashley transfer policy loan deal at best due to his age and Rafa did amazingly well to manage that!

    The deal that disgusts me is Rondon. He was probably the best forward we have had since Demba Ba and Ashley refused to buy him. The clown!
