Newcastle sign Chelsea outcast Kenedy on loan


Chelsea put Kenedy on the market after he was sent home from the club’s pre-season tour of China. The 21-year-old caused offence with his ill-advised posts on social media.

The shots on Instagram in which he accompanied it with captions of ‘Damn China’ and ‘Wake up China, you idiot!’. And the Daily Mirror claim the Magpies have moved quickly to secure a deal and help Kenedy rebuild his career.

Rafa Benitez will be hoping Kenedy wipes the slate clean and shows him what he’s made of. Kenedy is versatile as he can play as a winger, wing-back or left-back. Benitez admitted his frustration at the lack of transfer activity so far this summer on Tyneside.

“It is very hard because the prices are crazy,” he said. “We missed some targets at the beginning and we are paying for that, but hopefully we can find some solutions.”

Newcastle kick off their Premier League campaign at home to Tottenham in Sunday (1:30pm).
