Former Newcastle loanee Kenedy was on the move from Chelsea during the European transfer deadline day, as he penned a season-long loan deal at La Liga side Getafe.

Having been superb on Tyneside during his first loan spell at the club from January 2018, he failed to have much – if any – of an impact last season, which meant a permanent deal was never on the cards.

With the player being linked with a move to Championship side Reading earlier last month, a move to Spain seems ideal for the Brazilian.

It is such a shame that he did not make a success of his stint on Tyneside, with him showing what talent he has during his first few months here.

He was instrumental in saving Newcastle from yet another drop to the Championship that season, and although he struggled last campaign, most fans will prefer to remember the fantastic player from the previous one.

He never seemed to get a fair chance at Chelsea, and another move away from Stamford Bridge seemed inevitable.

Move to Getafe hardly seems a backward step for Kenedy

One Newcastle fans’ Twitter account suggested the move to Getafe was a sign of a player’s career going into free-fall, but some Newcastle fans have been quick to point out that with him playing in the Europa League, it could actually be seen as a step up from Newcastle.

Certainly we wish him well in his new adventure, and we will remember him for the brilliant three months or so he had when he first adorned the famous black and white shirt.

Here are some of the comments from Newcastle fans:
