Newcastle were interested in 26-year-old Dutch goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet back in 2013, but nothing came of that interest.
But now there is news that Newcastle are looking to swap Tim Krul for Zoet, who plays for PSV Eindhoven.
The report is in Fox Sports, and they report that both Benfica and Crystal Palace are also interested in signing the PSV goalkeeper.
Tim had loan spells with Ajax and AZ Alkmaar last season and is now surprisingly surplus to requirements at Newcastle and has been told he has no future at the club he joined way back in the summer of 2005.
Newcastle scouts were reported watching PSV beat Roda JC 2-0 last night, with Zoet keeping a clean sheet in that game.
But time is starting to run out with less than three full days left in the window, so if the deal is going to take place, it will have to be done quickly.
26-year-old PSV goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet
The 6ft 3 ins goalkeeper has been the number one at PSV since 2013, and he’s played over 160 times for the Eindhoven club.
He has 9 caps for the Netherlands and looks a decent enough goalkeeper.
And it looks like it will be a swap between Krul and Zoet with money possibly going to PSV for the transfer.
Tim Krul has played 185 times for Newcastle and 6 times for the Netherlands.
