Krul completes permanent Brighton switch
Written by Tom Easterby
Tim Krul’s season-long loan at Brighton & Hove Albion has been made permanent.
The Dutch international goalkeeper has penned a one-year permanent deal at the Amex Stadium, bringing his 12-year association with the Magpies to an end.
Krul, who joined Newcastle from ADO Den Haag in 2005, made his debut for United in a UEFA Cup tie at Palermo in November 2006, and went on to make a total of 185 appearances in all competitions for the club.
During his time at St. James’ Park, the 29-year-old also spent time out on loan at Falkirk, Carlisle United, Ajax and AZ Alkmaar, and earned eight caps for Holland.
Krul – who made his debut for Chris Hughton’s Seagulls in their Carabao Cup defeat to Bournemouth on Tuesday, having initially joined on loan last month – could now feature for his new club when they take on United in Sunday’s Premier League clash.
Everyone at Newcastle United would like to thank Tim for his long service to the club, and wish him and his family well for the future.
