Chelsea have agreed a deal which would see Adam Kennedy move to Newcastle United on a season-long loan deal with an option to buy, according to Sky Sports.

The deal has been officially announced on Newcastle’s website for the Brazilian born star.

It was understood that the winger had completed a medical at St James’ Park and re-joins the Magpies having signed a temporary deal at the club in January.

The Brazilian scored two goals in 13 appearances to help Rafa Benitez’s side retain their place in the Premier League.

An official statement reads: Benitez said: “I’m really pleased to have Kenedy back with us. I’m sure every fan will be happy with this signing.

“Hopefully he can keep playing at the same level that he reached with us last season. I wish him all the best for his time here.”

Kenedy added: “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.

“I have received many, many messages on social media from the fans. They made me feel appreciated, so I wanted to come here in this new season and give everything on the pitch.”

Before Monday’s confirmation of the Brazilian’s impending arrival on Tyneside, previous reports had made claims of Newcastle being given a £20m price to buy now and a £30m if instead, they went for a loan and option to buy.
