Newcastle sign young keeper Krul
Newcastle have signed young goalkeeper Tim Krul on a three-year deal from Dutch side Den Haag.

The 17-year-old, who is the Magpies' third signing of the summer, said he was delighted to secure the move.

"It's a fantastic move for me to sign for such a big club. To come and play in England has always been a dream," he told Newcastle's website.

"When I was a young boy I always used to say to my father that I wanted to come and play in England."

Manager Graeme Souness has already captured midfielders Scott Parker and Emre Belezoglu ahead of the new campaign.

Krul was a member of the Dutch squad that finished runner-up at May's Under-17 European Championship and qualified for September's Under-17 World Championship in Peru.
