It seems that the reports that the club have an option to buy Kenedy at the end of next season were false. Both the Chronicle and the Shields Gazette believe we don’t have a purchase clause in the loan deal for the Brazilian.

The Chronicle‘s Chief Sports Writer confirmed the news early this morning:

Fans on Twitter are frustrated with what they believe to be Mike Ashley’s penny pinching:


By not even including a purchase option in the deal, the club are leaving themselves wide open to the 22-year-old being poached by another club next summer if he impresses on his loan spell.

Of course, Kenedy is already a favourite among the fanbase, and certainly, that could persuade the winger to sign for us permanently eventually, but it’s frustrating to see the club not tying up a deal for the player now when we are in the perfect position to do so.
