“This new phase (of my career) in Newcastle’s shirt makes me very happy," the 22-year-old said.

“It is very difficult for a player to stay out of action for a long time, even more difficult to get back into the rhythm of the Premier League.”

Asked by UOL in Brazil about a permanent move to United in the summer, Kenedy said: “If it’s good for everyone, it would be a pleasure to continue wearing the shirt of this great team.”

On the influence of Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez, Kenedy said: “He insists that I learn to speak English.

“He acts towards me like a father, and I learn a lot from him.”

Kenedy and his team-mates are preparing for tomorrow's Premier League home game against Huddersfield Town.

United are 13th in the league with eight games left to play.
