The Covert Agent: Jack Duncan set for Saudi switch after Newcastle Jets departure

Goal's resident spy reveals the shot stopper will trade Newcastle for Saudi Arabia

Australian goalkeeper Jack Duncan has attracted the attention of a Saudi Arabian club, who have triggered his release from Newcastle Jets. 

The Covert Agent can reveal the club is believed to be eight-time Saudi Premier League winners Al-Nassr, though Al-Qadsiah are also in the running after making a late enquiry.

Newcastle confirmed on Monday night that they received a significant transfer fee for Duncan and were left with no choice but to release the 25-year-old.

Duncan made 19 A-League appearances for the Jets last season but cruelly missed out on the grand final after picking up an injury in a semi-final against Melbourne City.

After coming up through Newcastle's ranks, Duncan has also previously had short stints with Perth Glory and Danish side Randers.

If Al-Nassr is to be his next destination, the club are no strangers to Australian players having previously had Mark Bresciano in their ranks and were linked to a big-money move for Aaron Mooy in 2015.

Should it be Al-Qadsiah however, Duncan would link up with fellow Aussie Rhys Williams, who moved to the club from Melbourne Victory in the off season.
