Should PL veteran be the one to solve Norwich problem area?

Published

Daniel Farke will be looking for a new keeper next season.

First choice stopper Angus Gunn is returning to Manchester City and neither Michael McGovern nor Remi Matthews are likely to be trusted. The man they should be looking at, then, is Dutch international Tim Krul.

The 30-year old has seen a decline of favour since suffering a cruciate ligament rupture in 2015. Up until then, Krul had nailed down the starting berth at Newcastle as he made 157 Premier League appearances for the Magpies. Last season was spent on the bench watching Matt Ryan guard the Brighton net as Krul was only afforded cup appearances.

This is not to say that Krul is a goalkeeper on the decline, merely one who has fallen out of fashion. With experience in the Premier League, Eredivisie, and international football, there can be no doubting his pedigree. As well as his famous World Cup heroics against Costa Rica, he was Newcastle fans’ Player of the Season in 2011/12 as well as a Premier League Player of the Month in 2013.

Krul is now available on a free transfer. He would jump at the opportunity to be a first-team regular again, even if it meant dropping down into the Championship. His triumphs may be an increasingly distant memory, but any club that can reignite that form will reap the benefits. If Norwich can be that club, they will have found a fine solution to their keeper conundrum.
