Kenedy will become Newcastle’s first signing of the January window if his medical goes through.
Newcastle fans are delighted at the prospect of finally getting someone through the day, with one fan saying that Kenedy “will be the answer”.
Another said it was a “huge coup” while another was already looking ahead to the next transfer, asking Newcastle to sign Javier Hernandez.
The loan deal for Kenedy should be announced imminently, with Rafa Benitez reportedly in the market for a mystery £20m striker.
Meanwhile, here are the best reactions from Newcastle fans to the arrival of Kenedy at St James’ Park:

Kenedy arrived in Newcastle last night and will undergo an medical today ahead of a loan move. Chelsea have sanctioned the deal after agreeing terms with another reported #NUFC target Emerson Palmieri. Happy with this one. #Overdue
