Kenedy open to permanent transfer from Chelsea to Newcastle


Kenedy open to permanent transfer from Chelsea to Newcastle

Kenedy set for Chelsea departure

Brazilian forward Kenedy has revealed that he would strongly consider a permanent move from Chelsea to his current on loan club Newcastle United. The player has apparently told his agent that he would like to leave Stamford Bridge in search of regular first-team football.



Since moving to St James' Park, Kenedy has caught the eye at his new club, leaving manager Rafa Benitez toying over a permanent deal for the former Fluminese man.

Kenedy himself has admitted that he will seek a transfer if there is an offer of regular first team football.

"This new stage with Newcastle’s shirt makes me very happy," Kenedy told UOL. 

"It’s very difficult for a player to stay a long time without playing, even more to get back in the rhythm of the Premier League."

Kenedy would be allowed to leave Chelsea for a fee of around £14 million in the summer and currently has three years remaining on his Blues contract. 

Newcastle United have promised manager Rafa Benitez a transfer kitty of around £50 million this summer.
