But before his move, Kuol opted to soak up a Premier League game and made an appearance in the stands with the away supporters as Newcastle visited Fulham.

The 18-year-old made his international debut for Australia in September against New Zealand, becoming the youngest player since Harry Kewell to do so.

Fans also adored his presence at the game, with one saying, “He’s always loved magazines.”

A second user said, “What a boy. I love him already,” while another added, “He’ll turn on the Prem.”

The teenage striker was born in Egypt before moving as a refugee.

He currently plays for the A-League’s Central Coast Mariners – who have reportedly accepted £300,000 for him – and has scored four goals in eight league appearances this season.

In his announcement, Kuol said: “It’s unreal. As a young boy in Australia, the Premier League is the main thing everyone watches, but no one really thinks they will reach those heights.

“To be one of those people, to be in the position that I’m in, 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.”

Should Kuol make it to the tournament and make an appearance, he would become the Socceroos’ youngest player, but he would still be far from the youngest to ever appear at a World Cup.

Miguel Almiron’s brilliant brace brought Fulham down as Nathaniel Chalobah’s first red card for a horror tackle secured Fulham’s 4-1 defeat.

Almiron’s first goal was particularly impressive, as he executed a superb volley to flick the ball past Bernd Leno.
