Newcastle's Tim Krul out for season with knee injury

Tim Krul ruptured an anterior cruciate ligament in the Netherlands' Euro 2016 qualifier vs. Kazakhstan.

Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a serious knee injury, the club have confirmed.

Assessments have revealed the 27-year-old ruptured an anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Holland's Euro 2016 qualifier in Kazakhstan on Saturday.

A club statement added that Krul will now return to Tyneside for further treatment and rehabilitation.

The news is a serious blow for Magpies manager Steve McClaren, who is already without second-choice keeper Karl Darlow due to a foot injury.

The statement added: "Everyone at the club wishes him a speedy recovery."

Krul suffered the injury when he landed awkwardly on the artificial surface and was forced off after 81 minutes of Holland's 2-1 win at the Astana Arena.

Newcastle have also announced that 18-year-old Freddie Woodman has been recalled from his loan spell at League Two Crawley.

The club have endured a poor start to the season and are bottom of the Barclays Premier League without a win after eight games.
