Tim Krul Spills The Beans – Newcastle Want Pieters


We’re not sure the Newcastle club will be too pleased that their Dutch International goalkeeper Tim Krul has told the Dutch press that Newcastle are interested in PSV left back Erik Pieters.

Tim Krul – Pieters coming and Enrique going

And while Erik Pieters was due to join the Dutch squad for their game against England tomorrow night, the youngster has been given compassionate leave after the recent death of his grandmother.

Newcastle failed to do the deal for Swansea’s Neil Taylor, who was going to be brought in whether Jose Enrique left the club or not, and we wonder if that’s the case also with PSV Eindhoven’s Pieters?

Well, from Tim’s comments it seems that Jose still doesn’t want to sign his new contract at Newcastle and many clubs are interested in the 25 year-old.

Tim was talking to De Telegraaf in Holland, and this is what he said about Erik Pieters, who turned 23 last Sunday and is even younger than Tim:

“We are interested,”   “The coach himself and the assistants have already seen a few matches of PSV and the question now is whether the clubs can work it out.”

“Our current left-back Enrique has a contract that expires, however, he won’t sign and is interesting many clubs.”  “Erik is my friend since we played together at the World Championships in Peru in 2005.”

“From then we have always kept in touch, regularly send text messages and if possible we get together.”

Well not only has Tim spilled the beans on Erik, but he also suggests that Jose Enrique is indeed moving on, so it would appear the 23 year-old Dutch International would be a direct replacement for the Spanish U21 International.

It would be good for Tim as well, as they could both travel to future Holland Internationals together, but we’re sure that will not sway what the Newcastle Board wants to do.

😀

If Pieters is brought in for Jose Enrique, that be a good move for Newcastle,  and they would probably make money on the deal too, since they’ll get more for Jose than they pay out for Erik Pieters.

But what’s new?

    I don’t believe a word of ANYTHING until players are signed and giving it the ‘big un’ at a press conference.

    Listen, people have GOT to realise that they days were we buy half-arsed players who are at their end of their career is over. There is no such thing as panick buying anymore either. If there was, we’d have spent some of the Carroll money on a striker the very same day he was sold.

    Bridge, Warnock, Pavlyuchenko, Holt, FORGET THEM already. We aren’t in for these players anymore, the sooner people understand that, the better.

    We’re aiming for long term players who can do a job.
    Have some faith, if we’re linked with a person thats 28+, just automatically forget it, it won’t happen.

    He was meant to be joining up with the Dutch squad today.

    Guess it was just to be a part of the squad and to train with them then.

    You never know, but I doubt it as he has been on compassionate leave after death of his grandmother.

    Would love a press conference announcing 3 signings tomorrow like!

    Talking about Pieters could be a club ploy to seal the deal,the way HBA ‘sold’ the club to his France mates but for Krul to come out and say Enrique wont be signing a new contract,is way out of line IMO

    Why is it out of line, what he said about Jose has already been said many times by Pardew. Everyone knows he wont sign contract and that clubs are looking at him.

    I cannot fathom how Wenger could pay £12 million for a 17 year old.
    No one is that good at 17, no one!!
    Something tells me Wengers tale at Arsenal is coming to an end, that is just outrageous.
    If he fielded that 17 year old against us, Cabaye and Tiote would utterly demolish him. You’d find pieces of his confidence from the field all they way down to the showers in the dressing room.
    It’s absolute mental.

    Arsenal fans are in uproar about it.

    I think the lad is fairly overrated like.

    Wenger has made some big money mistakes in the past on youngsters too.

    I don’t think Krul’s said anything wrong.

    The Pieter’s interest was already in the public domain as was Enrique’s contract situation.

    He hasn’t been at all critical of the situation, sounds like it would be good for Krul to have Pieters at the club.

    Dutch defence, French midfield and forwards.

    There was talk of possibly postponing all football & sporting fixtures to allow for Police cover at ‘important’ issues, and also providing support in affected areas.
