Newcastle have reportedly made a decision on Garang Kuol’s future

Garang Kuol is poised for another loan spell away from Premier League giants Newcastle United, according to reports.

Chronicle Live, a local publication from Newcastle, claims the club are finalising paperwork to send the Socceroos teenager out on loan again after his stint with Scottish Premiership outfit Hearts last season.

The report does not name the club he could be heading on loan to, with links to a move to Ipswich Town seemingly going cold since they emerged back in May.

There has been much intrigue over Kuol and his whereabouts as Newcastle embark on their pre-season tour of the United States without him.

Fans on social media have been asking about the former Central Coast Mariners sensation, who joined Newcastle in January and was immediately loaned to Scottish Premiership outfit Hearts, where he amassed just 190 minutes of league action for the club. He did manage to score against Rangers in May.

Only last month, the 18-year-old forward shared training footage of himself in Verona, being put through his paces alongside the likes of Leicester City’s Amani Richards and Stoke City prospect Soulemayne Sidibe in Italy.

Kuol was part of the Olyroos squad that finished third at the prestigious Maurice Revello Tournament in France, however, was not included in Eddie Howe’s squad for the USA, where fellow youngsters Lewis Miley and Elliot Anderson have been handed opportunities to impress.

In May, Newcastle head coach Howe provided a verdict on Kuol’s temporary spell in Edinburgh which did not go according to plan.

“I think, whenever you loan a player, you hope they play every game, for a striker, they score loads of goals, they return in a brilliant mental place,” Howe said.

“Part of going on loan is that you don’t know what’s going to happen. They have to earn everything they get.

“Sometimes, through a disappointing loan, you can actually respond and learn things about yourself which makes the loan really beneficial. So I’d never look at it as a huge negative.

“But, of course, the loan probably hasn’t gone as we’d have hoped.”
