Tim Krul


Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul has been ruled out for the rest of the 2015/16 Premier League season with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

The Dutch international had to be withdrawn after 81 minutes of the Netherlands' European Championships qualification match at Kazakhstan's Astana Arena on Saturday evening and scans have since determined the severity of the injury.

Krul will now return to Tyneside for further treatment and rehabilitation and everyone at the Club wishes him a speedy recovery.

Following Krul's injury, Freddie Woodman has been recalled from his loan spell at Crawley Town.
