Chelsea transfer deal on verge of completion, player agrees personal terms

10 July 2018

According to the Mirror, Rafa Benitez and Newcastle are deep in discussions with Chelsea to re-sign Brazilian winger Kenedy.

That quoted fee would likely price out Newcastle from making the deal permanent, but that has not deterred their interest in bringing Kenedy back to St. James' Park for another season, albeit on a season-long loan deal. Kenedy joined Newcastle last January on a six-month loan deal and went on to star for the Magpies impressively. He fast became a fan favourite, scoring two goals and providing two assists for his teammates.

Kenedy has been a Chelsea player since 2015 though has started just five Premier League games for the club.

The uncertainty around Chelsea's managerial situation has meant it has been unclear who would be loaned out by the Blues this summer.

Newcastle United are reportedly on the verge of bringing Kenedy back to St James' Park.

Kenedy returned to pre-season training with Chelsea on Monday, but will now travel to Newcastle on Monday evening ahead of the move.

Asked about the possibility of returning to Newcastle in an interview with the Daily Mail in April, Kenedy said: "I am enjoying my time at Newcastle, but obviously I have a contract at Chelsea".

PSG, Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig were all rumoured to have been impressed with Kenedy's performances for Newcastle last season, but it seems the Magpies have got their man.
