Tim Krul Sent On One Month Loan Deal To Carlisle

20 year-old Dutch goalkeeper Tim Krul has joined Carlisle United on a one-month loan deal.

Tim Krul – month loan to Carlisle United

The Dutch Under-21 International spent much of last season on loan at SPL club, Falkirk, and is now off for a month to the north west of England.

Tim has only played one competitive senior game for Newcastle, when he had an absolute stormer, keeping a clean sheet in Newcastle’s 1-0 UEFA Cup win away to Palermo in 2006.

Our other outstanding young goalkeeper, Hexham born Fraser Forster, returned recently from a very successful loan spell at Stockport County, where he got some rave reviews for his goalkeeping.

But we’re surprised one of them doesn’t go out for a full season loan this year.

Comments welcome.

    The reason we didnt send him out on a longer loan is because we want to flog him in January. Kruls comments are very very worryin:

    Newcastle didn’t want to loan me out, I could only be sold for the right price,” the 20-year-old told Dutch fansite OnsOranje.

    “Feyenoord met all these demands and it looked perfect. My head was already in Rotterdam.

    “However, on a certain point Wise closed the door. I was disappointed.”

    “Sometimes I become crazy about it,” admitted the Dutch U21 international.

    “My future at Newcastle is now depending on Steve Harper who has an expiring deal. If he stays, I will go.

    “A transfer in the winter break would be a real option, but until that time I will be loaned out to Carlisle United.”

    How tight can MA be! His parents certainly chose the right name-as he is taken the Mick! Maybe his middle name is Charlie!

    He’s at that age where we either put him on the bench or sell him. He won’t wait forever.

    They will be getting rid of Harper in January, that is why Wise won’t sell Krul. he will be the new number 2 and take over for shay whenever he hangs them up
