Newcastle dealt blow as key loan man reveals Chelsea return wish

Oli Fisher

Loan star Kenedy has dealt a blow to Newcastle United by revealing his desire to return to Chelsea and compete for a place.

The Brazilian forward spent the second half of last season on loan on Tyneside and has returned for the 2018-19 season.

However, the 22-year-old has so far struggled to match his impressive levels from last season, putting in a notably lacklustre performance against Cardiff.

Nonetheless, Kenedy believes he has what it takes to eventually ‘become a champions’ at his parent club Chelsea.

“It is not that I didn’t succeed at Chelsea,” he told Brazilian website UOL Esporte.

“I arrived at 19, very young. It was good to be loaned to get more playing time; better than staying at Chelsea and not playing.

“I hope this year I can make a good season for Newcastle and go back to Chelsea to continue.

“I have a dream to return and to be a champion for the club.

“Just being in the Premier League is already a great achievement. A lot of people come and can’t play.

“For me, it’s been very good. My dream is to win a major title.”
