Kenedy has revealed that he could stay on Tyneside beyond the end of the season.

Up until now Rafa has been coy on whether the Brazilian will remain at the club after his loan spell ends this summer, but speaking to UOL (translated by the Chronicle), the winger hinted he would love to continue playing for us:

‘If it`s good for everyone, it would be a pleasure to continue wearing the shirt of this great team. This new phase of my career in Newcastle`s shirt makes me very happy.’

The reaction on Twitter to his comments were almost unanimously positive although some doubted whether Ashley would invest the money needed to sign him on a permanent basis:














Verdict:

Our current no.15 has been superb for us during his short stay. I would still like to see how he performs over the long term, but he would be well worth the reported £15m outlay on the evidence we’ve seen already.

Much will depend on what transfer budget the manager gets in the summer especially if we remain under the same ownership. It has been reported that there will be a bigger war chest to buy players but I will wait until I see the new signings wearing the shirt before I believe that.
