'Of course': Garang Kuol reveals exactly what he'll do when he scores his first Newcastle goal at home

Newcastle have completed the signing of young attacker, Garang Kuol, and the teenager has been speaking about his hopes for his time in England.

Kuol has been one of the most sought-after players outside of Europe but it is Newcastle who have won the race. It is a signal of intent from PIF and the club, with Eddie Howe saying Kuol had offers from other big clubs across Europe as well.

Naturally, then, Newcastle fans will be excited to see Kuol in action when he arrives properly in January. And the striker himself is looking forward to getting on the score sheet. Particularly, it seems, in front of the Gallowgate End.

When asked about if he’d had any thoughts on what he’d do if he scored that goal in front of the iconic Newcastle stand, Kuol had a simple but effective reply.

“Of course, a little knee slide!,” Kuol replied when asked.

Fans in the northeast have become accustomed to seeing strikers loving the feeling of scoring in front of the Gallowgate. Alan Shearer was the most famous, of course. But there have been a number of fine strikers to do the same at St James’ over the years.

Kuol, then, will be hoping it’s not too long before he can do the same.

TBR’s View: Newcastle Go Big With Kuol

This might be a significant moment for Newcastle you know. Yes, Kuol isn’t the finished article, nor is he the most expensive signing ever.

However, the Mags seem to have beaten off other clubs and that shows that players around the world are taking note of what is happening on Tyneside. It’s a potential floodgate opener, and if Kuol does well, other young players will see Newcastle as a good move.

All eyes now, then, will be on January and if Kuol can indeed get involved.
