Santon And Krul Give New Kit Thumbs Up

Newcastle United FC

Davide Santon and Tim Krul are both big fans of Newcastle United's brand new home kit for the new season

By Dan King - Newcastle United Digital Editor

Magpies stars Davide Santon and Tim Krul have given the Club's new PUMA home kit their seal of approval.

The stylish strip was unveiled on Sky Sports News on Thursday evening and nufc.co.uk then brought fans the first photographs of the black and white design with a blue trim.

Available to pre-order now by clicking here, the kit will go on sale on Thursday, August 22nd and, after modelling the shirts, shorts and socks at Newcastle's training ground, Santon and Krul gave their views to the official website.

"I think the new kit is nice, and I like the blue lines," Italian international Santon said. "It was nice to take two or three photos - it was a nice time and I had fun looking at the photos to see if I looked good or not.

"And I was really happy with them. The fans might have noticed that I've had another hair cut and the next time will be different again.

"Every time I get it cut, I change it. I like to change my style and I like to look good, and so I am pleased with this kit."

Krul, meanwhile, donned the green goalkeeper kit for the shoot and, having returned to training following the dislocated shoulder which brought a premature to his 2012/13 season, he is excited to wear it on the pitch.

"I like it," he smiled. "It's exciting - when we try the new kit out, you know it's that time of year and the new season is not far away.

"And I'm looking forward to wearing it on a matchday. I like the blue and the green kits and they've done a good job."
