Chelsea’s Kenedy has sealed his return to fellow Premier League club Newcastle United on a season-long loan deal.
Kenedy had earlier joined the Magpies on a six-month loan in January before scoring two goals in 13 appearances as he helped the North East club steer clear of relegation.
The 22-year-old has now returned to link up with manager Rafael Benitez at the club for the entire duration of the 2018/19 season.
Kenedy has already joined the team’s training camp in the Republic of Ireland.
He’s the club’s third summer signing after goalkeeper Martin Dubravka and midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung were signed earlier in the summer.
On his return to Newcastle United, Kenedy told the club’s website: “I am so happy with this interest from Rafa Benitez, that he came back for me.”
“I want to keep it going, the work that I did here before, for the new season.” He added.
Kenedy joined parent club Chelsea from Brazilian outfit Fluminense in 2015 and has played 27 times for the Blues.
