Newcastle have a goalkeeping crisis to solve.
Newcastle United are entertaining the possibility of signing a free agent goalkeeper, The Times report.
The Magpies have lost Tim Krul and Rob Elliott to season ending knee injuries, and must choose between inexperienced stoppers Karl Darlow and Freddie Woodman.
The club are in 19th position in the Premier League, and Rafa Benitez is reportedly considering his options, even though the free agent options are limited.
Here are three goalkeepers without a club who Newcastle could potentially consider…
Mihaylov is a Bulgarian international goalkeeper with 31 caps to his name, who is currently without a club, having been undergoing his own injury rehab. He spent three years at Liverpool between 2007 and 2010, signed during Rafa Benitez’s spell at Anfield. The 27-year-old has also played for Twente and featured in Champions League matches, and was linked with a move to Tottenham in 2011 by The Mail. A deal would depend on him proving his fitness.
Stuart Taylor has spent most of his career as a back-up goalkeeper, spending years on the bench at Arsenal, Aston Villa, and Manchester City. The 35-year-old has always been a dependable stand in, but remains a free agent. His most recent spell came at Leeds United, where he featured at the end of last season.
Tzorvas has 16 caps for Greece but the former Panathaniakos goalkeeper is currently without a club. His last action came in the Indian football league, but the 33-year-old also has spells with Italian clubs Palermo and Genoa under his belt. He starred for Greece at the 2010 World Cup, and would be able to bring experience which neither of Newcastle’s current options possess.
