Krul not interested in leaving Newcastle

Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul has rejected the suggestion that he could leave the club this summer, despite reported interest from Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, Sporting Life has reported.

The Netherlands international, currently with his country at Euro 2012, recently signed a long-term contract to stay in the North East and insists he is not seeking to break it. The 24-year-old added he is excited by the prospect of playing in Europe with the Magpies, after helping Alan Pardew’s side to a fifth-place finish in last season’s Premier League.

Krul said: “It's all just talk. I've signed my five-year contract and I'm committed to Newcastle United. The club has not played in Europe for six years and I want to be a part of that.

An ever-present in the league last season, Krul has been at Newcastle since July 2005, arriving on Tyneside from ADO Den Haag initially on youth terms. But Krul progressed through the ranks at the club to eventually dislodge Steve Harper as Newcastle’s first-choice goalkeeper, conceding 51 goals in 38 league games last term, the joint-second most of any team in top half.

Interesting that you chose to print the stat that makes Krul look bad rather than mentioning that he had the 2nd highest number of clean sheets in the league, behind Joe Hart. Are we not a Newcastle fan then?
