Newcastle United have completed the signing of Kenedy on loan from Chelsea.
The Brazilian winger – who enjoyed a successful spell on loan at St. James’ Park last term – returns to the club until the end of the 2018/19 season.
Kenedy is well-known to United supporters, having spent half of the 2017/18 season on Tyneside as Newcastle secured a top-ten finish under manager Rafa Benítez.
He joined on loan in January, playing 13 times, scoring twice and winning the FUN88 player of the month award for March.
The former Brazil Under-23 international becomes Newcastle’s third addition of the summer, following the permanent acquisitions of Martin Dubravka and Ki Sung-yueng.
He has joined up with the rest of the Magpies squad at the club's pre-season camp in Ireland and will train this morning.
The 22-year-old began his career in his homeland with Fluminense, where he made 31 appearances and scored twice before making a move to Stamford Bridge in August 2015.
He has featured 27 times in all for the Blues, netting three times, while he also spent time on loan at fellow Premier League side Watford in 2016.
