Kenedy joined the Magpies on a short-term temporary deal from Chelsea in January and went on to impress, establishing himself as something of a fans’ favourite.
However, it was unclear as to whether or not he would return for the 2018/19 season, be it on a temporary or permanent basis.
Kenedy is expected to be confirmed for Newcastle United on a season-long loan from Chelsea after completing his medical yesterday afternoon.

Following such an impressive spell up north, Kenedy was courted by a number of top European clubs, including Bayern Munich and PSG.
Chelsea are well-stocked with attacking options and it seems Kenedy is surplus to requirements ahead of next season.
