In 2007 Knol left his club and signed a 2-year contract until 2009 at the Greek club of PAOK Saloniki. After one season the club did not pay his salary on time that resulted in a free transfer. He returned home and signed for Sparta a 3-year contract until 2011.

In July 2011 he returned to his former club Vitesse to work on his fitness. His contract at Sparta was not extended and he was available on a free transfer. After not receiving a contract, Knol decided to hang up his boots and moved on a world trip in the direction of Asia.
