Kenedy’s time at Newcastle has come to an end – for now at least – and the Brazilian has thanked his loan club in an Instagram post.

It seems really heartfelt, and that’s no surprise given how he’s been taken into their hearts at St James’ Park.

He thanks the fans, Rafa Benitez, and the club itself with an “howay tha lads”. You can imagine he’s probably not too keen to head back to Chelsea to sit on the bench again now.
