Done Deal!! Chelsea Announces Kennedy Returns

Chelsea’s deadline day is approaching slowly but steadily as they try to wrap up their January business.

The Blues have yet to welcome any new players to Stamford Bridge as of this writing, with Thomas Tuchel attempting to keep his team competitive on numerous fronts.

That isn’t to say that the reigning European champions haven’t been connected with a few names so far in the window – quite the contrary.

Chelsea is rumored to be on the lookout for defensive reinforcements, with names like Theo Hernandez, Sergino Dest, and others being mentioned.

Chelsea chose to recall Brazilian utility man Kenedy from a season-long loan with Flamengo as part of their January transfer window quest for a full-back.

The Blues’ January business began quietly enough, with the signing of young goalkeeper Jamie Cumming from MK Dons in League One.

He spent the first part of the season with Gillingham before joining Stadium:MK for the balance of the campaign.
