After leaving Central Coast Mariners for Newcastle in the middle of last season, Kuol soon moved to Hearts in January. The young Australian hoped to shine at Tynecastle, but he only played nine times in all competitions.
Kuol came back to Newcastle when the season ended, but he will not stay there for long. He is expected to join FC Volendam on-loan for the whole season.
Volendam were 14th in the league last season and have a very young team. Kuol might fit in better with the squad than he did at Hearts.
Speaking after Kuol netted his first goal for Hearts, Eddie Howe said: “It’s been a tough loan spell for him, but hopefully there’s some real positivity to take into the summer for him, off the back of that goal.
“I think it’s probably too early for him to be part of our first-team picture here next year. I think, potentially, another loan spell will do him good as he continues to develop to the pace of this league.”
Kuol is not the only Newcastle player who will go on-loan to the Netherlands next season.
He might play against Yankuba Minteh, a talented winger who came to the club this summer from Odense Boldklub in Denmark. Minteh will spend next season on-loan at Feyenoord.
Minteh and Kuol both want to do well during their loan spells and try to get into Howe’s first team.
