Newcastle United transfer news: Magpies failed pursuit of midfielder was ‘messy’, European giants target £45m Man City ace
Here is the latest transfer news from the Premier League.
Newcastle United have confirmed the signing of Australian youngster Garang Kuol.
The 18-year-old has joined the Magpies from Central Coast Mariners, where he will remain until the January transfer window.
Kuol made his senior debut for the Mariners a year ago and has since scored four goals in his first seven league appearances.
Speaking to the club, Kuol said: “It’s unreal. As a young boy in Australia, the Premier League is the main thing that everyone watches but nobody actually thinks they’ll reach those heights. To be one of those people, to be in the position I am, it’s amazing.
“Now that I’ve signed for Newcastle, I want to train hard, play hard, hopefully go to the World Cup and come back here.”
