Chelsea’s Kenedy has been away on loan since the start of 2018.

After spending 18 months at Newcastle United, the Blues allowed the 24-year-old to joined Getafe on a season-long loan deal last summer.

Earlier this week, the La Liga side confirmed the left wing-back will return to west London club and he will not be part of their squad for the remaining fixtures. Getafe also failed to retain Deyverson as he returned to Palmeiras.

Thursday’s edition of AS explains the Spanish side ‘fought’ for the duo’s continuity until the end of the season, but they had to back out because the ‘cost was too high’. Therefore, their exit from the club was ‘premature’.

Getafe manage José Bordalás also backed these claims, suggesting his side faced “economic problems” to retain the Chelsea owned player and Deyverson until the end of this campaign.

Kenedy managed three goals and five assists in 27 appearances in all competitions.

With a contract at Stamford Bridge until 2022, the South American will have to wait find out whether or not Frank Lampard will include him in his plans for next season.
