Newcastle Could Cash In On Goalkeeper This Summer


Rob Elliott and Karl Darlow have shown they are more than capable of playing for Newcastle United at the highest level – and when Newcastle go about their clear-out, which could be really massive this summer –  don’t be too surprised if they offload Tim Krul for a good fee.

Karl Darlow will be the only one fit in pre-season along with Tim Krul – and maybe Newcastle will bring in another goalkeeper or extend young Freddie Woodman’s contract.

Tim Krul – leaving this summer?

Freddie is a very good young England goalkeeper, but there are persistent rumors he will leave Newcastle in the summer and join ether a big club or reunite with his father Andy at Crystal Palace.

If we do manage to keep Freddie at the club and Tim leaves  that would mean at least Darlow and Woodman would be fit for the first game of the season, which will be in early August in the Championship.

They are the ones fit at the moment for Newcastle with both Tim and Rob out with serious ACL knee injuries picked up playing in Internationals.

There is a report out today that Newcastle are in advanced talks with Everton related to Tim’s transfer,  but we don’t know how accurate that report is.

However, we will hardly keep all three goalkeepers at Newcastle next season and the one we can get most money for is the experienced Tim Krul, who may not want to play in the Championship next season.

And then Rob Elliot, when he’s fit again and Karl Darlow would have to fight it out for the number one jersey.

Tim Krul joined Newcastle in the summer of 2005 from ADO Den Haag when Graeme Souness was the manager and he has made 185 appearances for Newcastle.

The 28 year-old has 8 full caps for the Netherlands and played for all the Netherlands Youth sides.

Who Was Newcastle's Best Player Against Aston Villa?

    I think Krul will be one of many who head through the exit door but it’s the younger players we simp,y have to keep hold of as any rebuilding must be done around them

    If Sunderland lose on Wednesday then it’s almost impossible to call, but right now I can’t see us getting ourselves out of this and sadly think Sunderland will get the points they need this week

    i expect the mackems to win unfortunately,hope they dont but when they have needed the results of late they got them, we have’nt by and large,my worry is if, like u say, the mackems get beat…1)watford are not good enough, like there form has showed and 2) can we do what is required against spurs,which we have’nt shown all season….it would be an utter disgrace if the unwashed were to lose there next two games and we didnt do enough to stay but can you honestly see us showing up and getting what we need when they could’nt do it against villa twice this season….im still hoping mate,i am but we are very reliant on the fortunes of others now when it should of been in our hands.

    Graham Carr should do well if we go down as he’s been signing championship standard players for years.

    But on a serious note, I do expect both Charnley and Carr to be sacked irrespective of what league we are in next season and I’d be amazed if Raffa where to stay if we go down as he’d have his pick of top flight clubs

    @stuart: It’ll be down to the wire if they do, but having seen how Everton are playing lately (especially yesterday against Leicester), I’d be amazed if Sunderland got anything other than a point. Everton have been bloody awful lately.

    If you watched Everton yesterday you would have seen nothing from them, they didn’t look interested at Leicester.
    I cannot see them beating Sunderland but getting a draw is still a possibility. Still goes down to the last game hopefully, don’t get me wrong if we get relegated I have made my peace with that. But a draw would still give us that outside chance. And lets be honest here, if for some reason that miracle happened and we stayed up and Sunderland were relegated that would be a double win for the fans. We keep Rafa and the Red and White shite goes away for a few seasons. Three days to Armageddon, Howay the Toon, No let’s go with Howay the Fans.

    It’s going to be interesting in the summer to see if or how many have got relegation clauses that will allow them to leave cheap. The club will either have to pay them or take massive losses on them. Nobody is going to pay 15M for Wijnaldum, Cisse and Collo will go for free. Tiote might fetch 4M and Sissoko 5M, Anita might bring in 3M as well with maybe Perez fetching 7M, if we’re lucky we might get 20M from player sales.

    Nice for Arma to break the 20 goals in a season barrier. Nice goal too. One of the bright spots of the season. Can’t wait to see him back. 😉
    Just skipped through some comments. Nice to see the fans getting the the blame again! The best thing about our club is the fans and our undying loyalty. It’s so simple – if you don’t want to go, fine, stay away. Don’t tell us to stay away, it’s simply not happening. It’s been worse than this before and we stayed. It’s called loyalty and unconditional support. If you don’t get that, unlucky.
    In this mental season, it would not be beyond belief for Everton to turn the mackems over and reopen the door for us. Until we’re down, there is still a chance. At home, with the crowd behind us, we can beat spurs and hope watford do us a favour.

    ____________Darlow____________
    Mbemba__Lascelles_Dummet__Robertson
    _________Shelvey__Colback
    Townsend____Armstrong____Aarons
    ____________?????????

    I’d like a high scorer in the Championship from this season to be brought in, somebody that we know can do the business in that league.

    Townsend will have plenty of options, but he seems like a model pro and doubt he’ll get much more cash elsewhere, so he might stay, particularly given there’s no international tournament at the end of next season.

    Robertson from Hull is a no-brainer if they don’t go up, though I imagine he’ll have PL suitors.

    Shelvey I thought would be gone if you asked me a couple of months ago, now after been benched and due to his wages, think he’s gonna have to roll his sleeves up here and help us bounce back.

    It isn’t even entirely up to Sunderland to decide our fate. If Sunderland lose their 2 games and we somehow manage to beat Spurs, we can still be relegated by Norwich on GD if they win both their games.

    Just goes to show how slim our chances are of staying up

    Nugent might be worth a shout, Boro will know that he is one of those strikers not suited to the PL and could be just what we need to show Mitro and Armstrong the Champio shop ropes.

    Stuart even if they lose against Everton (which they won’t) they’d still be favourites. Simply because it would still be in their hands.

    Norwich could also beat Watford and be level on points with us. So we’d be relying on them to not better our result against Spurs on the last day. Oh and the Mackems not to beat Watford.

    Belfast,
    What’s made today so defeatist is not the mackems winning so much but the toothless display we saw against a team that had lost eleven in a row. Even if we’d won we’d still be needing Everton to win but there would have been a defiant attitude on here. They gave us absolutely nothing to cheer for yesterday.

    I’d go for Ross Mcormack.

    Almost went to Boro in Jan, seemingly wants away and has 21 goals and 9 assists in a struggling Fulham team, with a mins/goals average just outside that 1 in 2 ratio all STs have when they’re one of the best at any particular level.

    I just don’t believe the mackems will pass up the chance to relegate us and I don’t think we would either if the shoe was the other foot.

    We managed to turn up against West Ham last season with Mike Bassett in charge. I would expect them to do the same sadly.

    they seem to want to be part of the entertainment,instead of doing there job,without a great deal of reprimand for cock ups….the lines against city should be relegated to lower league and reviewed after 3month….might stop them cockin up so often……that italian baldy ref was fantastic,colleena i think he was called.

    I suggested Nugent because of his age and cheap price tag?, if we buy Championship players you have to take them into the PL with you and we don’t want to be starting from scratch again.
