Kenedy sends message to Newcastle fans

Kenedy has sent a message to Newcastle United fans.

The on-loan winger was voted as the club's Fun88 Player of the Month for March.

Kenedy was presented with his award before Sunday's home game against Arsenal, which Newcastle won 2-1.

The 22-year-old has made a big impact since joining from Chelsea in January.

And Kenedy – who had been on the fringes of Antonio Conte's team at Stamford Bridge – is enjoying his time at St James's Park.

"Thanks to all the fans who supported me," Kenedy told NUFC TV.

"I'm glad to be player of the month, and I'm very happy to be part of the Newcastle team. Thank you!"

United manager Rafa Benitez is keen to sign Kenedy on a permanent move in the summer.

However, a number of other clubs, including Arsenal, have also been linked with him.

Benitez was asked last week if he was concerned that his performances had inflated his value.

"Yes, but if you say 'do you want him to score goals and the value will go up?'," said Benitez. "Then yes, I want him to score goals.

"That's it, football is like this. If you have a good player, the value goes higher. He has the level to play in a top team – but he's in a top side already!''
