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.
Great to get my first minutes in the cup for @OfficialBHAFC. Shame we didn't win but lots of positives to take from it #debut #BHAFC pic.twitter.com/uhSyCQ3Q0u— Tim Krul (@TimKrul) September 20, 2017
Everyone at Newcastle United would like to thank Tim for his long service.— Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) September 20, 2017

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.
