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.
