Timothy "Tim" Krul (born April 3, 1988 in The Hague) is a Dutch footballer who currently plays as a goalkeeper for Newcastle United.

Newcastle United

Krul signed for Newcastle in July, 2005, on a three year deal from ADO Den Haag. He played in the Under-17 European Championship for the Netherlands in Tuscany in May, 2005, and has since become a member of the Dutch under-21 squad. He made his first senior appearance for Newcastle in a pre-season defeat to PSV Eindhoven on July 29, 2006.

Following the injury to Newcastle's first-choice goalkeeper, Shay Given, he was on the bench for a few games while Steve Harper kept goal. Krul made his Newcastle debut in the UEFA Cup game on November 2, away to Palermo. His debut was hailed by critics as he displayed his shot-stopping abilities, saving efforts from Giuseppe Biava and David Di Michele and recording a clean sheet in the process.

He injured himself in the warm up against Palermo, and then aggravated that injury in the warm up before a game against Watford. He required two cartilage operations as a result, keeping him out of action for almost 6 months. He returned to action in April, 2007.

On 13 June, he signed a new four year contract with Newcastle.

On 3 August, Krul joined Scottish side Falkirk on loan originally until 1 January, 2008, though it was later extended until the end of the season after a number of impressive performances.

In the two games immediately following his debut, he conceded 4 goals against Celtic and 7 goals against Rangers at Ibrox. Krul was sent off for the first time in his professional career on 2 January, after reacting badly to an opponent's challenge. Shortly afterwards he was injured, suffering a dislocated shoulder during a Scottish Cup defeat against Aberdeen, and resulting in him missing the rest of the season.
