Newcastle Preparing to Turn Down Option to Buy in Loanee's Deal After Disappointing Season

Sports Illustrated - 03-22


Newcastle United will reject the chance to sign Chelsea winger Kenedy at the end of the season, after the Brazilian's inconsistent season on loan at St James' Park. Kenedy enjoyed an impressive run of form with the Magpies last season, prompting Rafa Benitez to extend his loan deal last summer. However, his form this year has dipped, and the Brazilian has lost his place in the lineup as a result.
