Ajax Sign Tim Krul On Loan As Replacement For Cillessen
— AFC Ajax (English) (@AFCAjax_EN) August 25, 2016
At Ajax, Dutch international Krul will continue the last phase of his recovery from a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament, suffered in October 2015 with the Dutch national team. Together with the loan deal he also agreed a one-year contract extension at Newcastle until the summer of 2018.
Krul joined Newcastle from ADO Den Haag in mid-2005 at the age of 17 and made his first team debut in November 2006. After loan spells at Falkirk and Carlisle United, he established himself as first choice goalkeeper ahead of the 2011/12 season. He has never played at the highest Dutch league level yet.
