Kuol hasn’t trained with the Newcastle first-team since returning from a loan spell at Heart of Midlothian last season and is expected to join Dutch side FC Volendam following a meeting with Howe on Thursday.


“I met with him [Thursday] and had a really good chat,” Howe said during his press conference on Friday, August 4. “I believe he’ll be going out on loan on Friday.”


Howe has stated his intention to keep youngsters Lewis Miley and Alex Murphy around the first-team after impressing in pre-season.
