Kenedy made 13 appearances for Newcastle following his arrival in January and he is looking forward to working under Rafael Benitez in the months ahead.

"I am so happy with this interest from Rafa Benítez, that he came back for me. I want to keep it going, the work that I did here before, for the new season," Kenedy told the club's official website.

"I have received many, many messages on social media from the fans. They made me feel appreciated, so I wanted to come here in this new season and give everything on the pitch."
