Tim Krul has signed a one-year deal with Brighton & Hove Albion. Krul has a unique opportunity to have his first game in this Premier League season to be against his former club this Sunday. The new deal voids the previous terms of his loan agreement, barring him from performing against Newcastle.
Krul has appeared once for Brighton, a 1-0 loss against Bournemouth in a Carabao Cup clash. Krul performed admirably but was ultimately beaten by Josh King in the 99th minute.
Krul started his Newcastle career with the youth team in 2005. But Krul’s Premier League debut would come in 2010 against Everton while his first Premier League start would come a week later against Stoke City. Ironically, Steve Harper, the keeper he would overtake, was then loaned out to Brighton for a season.
We wish Krul all the best, maybe not this Sunday, in his next steps of his career.
