Duut started his football career at amateur side Transvalia ZW in his hometown Rotterdam before being scouted by Feyenoord Rotterdam. At Feyenoord Rotterdam he made his professional debut on 13 March 1982 when Feyenoord Rotterdam won 1-2 in Eindhoven against PSV. For six seasons Duut was part of the Feyenoord Rotterdam squad and during the 1983-84 season he and his team mates won the double (Eredivisie and KNVB Cup).
