​Newcastle relieved as Kenedy avoids retrospective ban

Newcastle United's on-loan midfielder Kenedy will not serve a ban for kicking out at Cardiff's Victor Camarasa in their Premier League draw on Saturday.

The 22 year old Brazilian looked to kick Camarasa off the ball and it appeared to be missed by referee Craig Pawson.

But a free-kick was awarded, so the Football Association considers the matter dealt with.

Its independent panel can only issue retrospective bans for incidents that were missed at the time.
