Kenedy was quickly back into his stride on Thursday after agreeing to return for a second loan spell at Newcastle.
The 22-year-old Brazilian also joined several team-mates in dying his hair bleach blonde for pre-season training.
Newcastle’s American defender DeAndre Yedlin, who also sported a blonde hairdo, told NUFC TV: ‘It looks like I’m rubbing off on some of the guys. It might be hard to tell me and Kenedy apart for a little bit but we’ll see.

And he told NUFC TV: ‘I’m so happy to come back to my second home.
‘When the club showed an interest in me again and the call came, as the Brazilian expression goes, O bom filho à casa torna: the good son will always come home.
‘It’s a club I identified with quickly. Everybody here treated me so well and I feel so good. It feels like family, it feels like home, so that’s why I say it feels like my second home.
‘I aim to come here in this new season and give everything on the pitch and keep the work going from the season before.’
