Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul provides injury update on Twitter

Tim Krul

The Newcastle United goalkeeper has been absent since October.

Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul has posted a positive injury update via Twitter.

The Dutch goalkeeper has been missing since October, after picking up a cruciate knee ligament injury while playing for the Netherlands.

He has been sorely missed in that time as a disastrous campaign has seen the Magpies relegated to the Championship.

In his absence, two stars have stepped up, with Rob Elliot and Karl Darlow playing their part in goal and impressing.

Newcastle will be keen to have him back as their number one for next year though, and he has provided them with a boost in his positive injury update on Twitter.

Better news for Newcastle will be the fact that Krul has also hinted he will be remaining at the club for the near future.

There is a fear that several of their stars could be set to exit in the summer as a result of the Magpies' relegation to the Championship.

The Dutchman could potentially have been among those eyeing an exit but instead looks set to stay, and they will be hoping several others follow his example.
