Brighton and Hove Albion goalkeeper Tim Krul has played down the neck injury which forced him off after 45 minutes on Saturday.
The Seagulls stopper fell awkwardly in the first-half of the FA Cup clash with Coventry City which left him needing treatment. However, Krul moved quickly to allay any concerns of a serious injury with the 29-year-old poised to return to the Brighton bench next weekend. "I just stiffened up at half time. I’m a bit of robot now!" he revealed. "They have looked after it and said it was fine. It was just a bad landing." Krul was making only his fourth start since arriving from Newcastle, but despite his impressive performances in domestic cup competition, he has found it difficult to displace Aussie international Matt Ryan who joined for an undisclosed record fee in the summer. Veteran keeper Niki Mäenpää will provide back-up if Krul fails to recover in time for the game against Swansea City. Feb 19 - 12:20 PM

Less than 24 hours after making his debut for the club in the Carabao Cup, Tim Krul has signed for Brighton permanently from Newcastle.

Krul had been at Newcastle since 2005 when he first arrived on English shores from the Dutch league, however a series of injuries which began whilst on international duty for the Netherlands in October 2015 saw him fall out of favour on Tyneside with Rafa Benitez. Krul was tested on numerous occasions by Bournemouth in his bow for the Seagulls, doing well to keep the scoreline to 1-0. He is currently behind Maty Ryan in the pecking order though he can realistically hope to break into the side as the season progresses. Krul has been at Brighton a few weeks, having originally signed for a season-long loan. He has signed a one-year contract after making the move permanent.

Brighton's new goalkeeper, Tim Krul, on loan from Newcastle until the end of the season, hopes to show that he is back to his best this season for The Seagulls.

Krul, 29, knew he was surplus to requirements at Newcastle while Rafa Benitez remains in charge, having spent the summer with the Magpies' under 23s. He saw his career careen into an abyss after suffering a long-term injury playing for the Netherlands in late 2015 and once he recovered he spent time on loan at Ajax and AZ Alkmaar. However, Krul knows he has no small task ahead to knock Ryan out of the Brighton first team: "But I know, after the injury, I need to show that I’m back where I was. It doesn’t matter what you did two years ago, it’s what you do now." Krul also expressed his excitement at getting to work under Chris Hughton again, having worked together at St. James' Park in the past before Hughton was sacked.

Newcastle confirmed goalkeeper Tim Krul has completed a Deadline Day move to Brighton & Hove Albion.

The 29-year-old heads to fellow newly-promoted club Brighton on a season-long loan after months of rumors of a move abroad. The Dutch international spent the last season on loan in the Dutch league with Ajax and AZ Alkmaar and now reunites with former Newcastle manager Chris Hughton at Brighton, where he will have to compete with summer arrival Mat Ryan for the starting role.

Tim Krul’s time on Tyneside could be up after Newcastle confirmed the signing of Belgian goalkeeper Matz Sels from Gent.

Krul has been side-lined since rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament while on international duty in October 2015, although he is said to be closing in on a return to full fitness. However, the arrival of Sels might signal the end for Krul after the 24-year-old was given assurances by Rafa Benitez that he would get a fair crack at claiming the No.1 jersey. The news will alert the likes of Everton and newly promoted Middlesbrough plus former manager Alan Pardew at Crystal Palace – linked heavily previously - and with only one-year remaining on his current deal, Newcastle look set to cash in on the Dutch international.

Alan Pardew has expressed interest in signing Tim Krul from Newcastle United should Wayne Hennessey depart from Crystal Palace.

Hennessey is rumored to be courted by Everton now that Tim Howard has left for MLS and Pardew is looking to reunite with the Dutch keeper, who had his best run in the Premier League when Pardew was at the Newcastle helm. Krul would surely then be open to the move, as it would give him the opportunity to stay in the top flight as a first-choice keeper. Krul is still working his way back from a major knee injury that saw him miss the majority of last season. The Magpies would still have Rob Elliot and Karl Darlow should Krul join the Eagles.

Tim Krul will miss the remainder of the campaign after tests revealed the Dutch international suffered ligament damage during the Euro qualifier in Kazakhstan.

Krul was seen leaving the national stadium on Saturday with the aid of crutches amid fears that he had suffered a serious knee injury. Those suspicions were confirmed today as Newcastle announced that Krul had ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament and will spend around 9-months on the sidelines. In his absence Rob Elliot will be recalled from the wilderness as former Notts Forest stopper Karl Darlow is also sidelined because of an ankle ligament problem. England under-19 International goalkeeper Freddie Woodman has ended his loan spell at Crawley Town. The youngster is yet to feature in a senior game for the Black and Whites.

Tim Krul is the latest Newcastle United regular to suffer an injury blow, damaging his knee during Holland's 1-2 win over Kazakhstan in a Euro qualifier.

Perhaps you are not one to believe in curses, but if you happen to even in the slightest, it is difficult to make sense any other way about the state of injuries for the Magpies. Last season, Krul missed time and the man next on the depth chart Rob Elliot missed out as well, leaving an inexperienced Jak Alnwick to mind the sticks for a stretch. Now with Krul and Karl Darlow looking major doubts for Newcastle's next league match, it will be up to Elliot to deputize and the club will have to dig further into their youth squad for a backup candidate as Alnwick has since moved on. Elliot would likely be readily available for cheap or nothing at all in all fantasy formats, but even with a kind schedule upcoming on paper, it would seem a grand leap of faith to use budget replacements from this side right now.

Tim Krul and the Newcastle United defense delivered a fantastic performance against Manchester United, keeping the Red Devils out at Old Trafford to earn a point in a 0-0 final.

The opening half hour was all Manchester, peppering the Magpie goal, but the Dutch keeper was on his A game today, eventually stopping eight shots, many of a high quality nature. Also impressing was the play of Fabricio Coloccini, who made a splendid tackle on Memphis Depay near the end of the first half. The attack had their chances, with Aleksandar Mitrovic making his first start and looking an aerial threat, heading one off of the bar. A late counter by Papiss Cisse and Ayoze Perez nearly stole all the points at the end, but Newcastle should be feeling quite pleased with the result today regardless.

Newcastle's defense was poor in week one, allowing Southampton two goals at home and almost giving up another late in the match.

Southampton had 14 shots in the match and almost stole all three points in stoppage time, when Sadio Mane had two opportunities to take the lead. Newcastle's defense was not at all impressive and they travel to a dangerous Swansea side in week two. Tim Krul and the defensive line in front of him are not good fantasy options for this week.

Tim Krul stood between the sticks for Newcastle United last weekend, as Manchester City ran roughshod over them with five goals, but his terrible day has resulted in an extreme price drop.

Currently available for under 3.5m, Krul has seen his price plummet by over 4m in one change. Between last week's result and the injury crisis they are facing, suggesting him seems like a fool's errand on the surface. But considering they are hosting Aston Villa, if they are capable of keeping an opponent out, this provides there best chance of doing so. Breaking it down from a points per pound perspective, he is level with the likes of David De Gea, Fraser Forster and Hugo Lloris. There is inherent risk in putting him into your XI, but if you need to find a cheap play somewhere to free up cash, he should be considered.

Newcastle United are happy to have Tim Krul back in training after their #1 had been sidelined with an ankle injury since late November.

Jak Alnwick was thrown into the fire and got burned pretty good, as the Magpies conceded 8 goals over their last three league matches. Lucky for them, they managed 4 points in that span anyway. While his return gives a lift to all Newcastle defensive options, a trip to Stamford Bridge this weekend is not an opportune time to use any of them. It may be in the club's best interest to seek out a loan spell sometime this month to serve as a better backup to Krul, who has a history for getting injured more often than your average keeper.

Tim Krul picked up a knock in training this week and remains a doubt for Newcastle's trip to West Ham United tomorrow.

Krul's status is considered "touch and go" but if you have a deadline before the Magpies team news comes out, you cannot trust Krul to start and unless you have a viable backup, you are taking a major chance in playing him. Rob Elliot would deputize should Krul sit tomorrow's match out.

Tim Krul made three saves to help lift Newcastle to its fourth straight win.

Krul had a couple shaky moments, but did what he needed to do to earn the shutout. Krul started out the the 2014-15 season with just one clean sheet in the teams first seven games, but since then has secured three clean sheets in his last four matches. With matches scheduled against QPR, West Ham and Burnley over the nexxt few weeks it's time to give Krul a look. After this stretch of games their schedule gets rather difficult.

Tim Krul notches his second clean sheet of the season and enjoyed a rare productive fantasy day, but the odds are he will not be able to keep it up over the next few weeks.

At home against a promoted side is usually the best recipe for a clean sheet for clubs that normally struggle to keep them, and that is exactly what Newcastle did to Leicester City over the weekend. Unfortunately, the Magpies travel to Tottenham next, then host Liverpool, then a trip to the Hawthorns where the seemingly unstoppable Saido Berahino will be waiting for them. Krul cannot be recommended for any of these fixtures and you should have another option in place if he is currently in your squad.
