Karl Darlow

Position:
Goalkeeper
Date signed:
4th August 2014

The grandson of former Welsh forward Ken Leek, who played for the Magpies in 1961, Karl is a fine shot-stopper.

Born in Northampton, Karl spent time with Aston Villa as a youngster before emerging from the academy system at Nottingham Forest - eventually clocking up more than a hundred senior league appearances for the club.

He joined United alongside Forest teammate and close friend Jamaal Lascelles in August 2014 and after returning to the City Ground on a one-year loan deal, he made his Premier League debut for Newcastle away at West Bromwich Albion in December 2015.

Following injuries to Tim Krul and Rob Elliot during the 2015/16 Premier League season, Karl deputised admirably for the latter part of the campaign and memorably saved a penalty from Yohan Cabaye at the Gallowgate End during a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
