NUFC Keeper Confusion

NUFC Keeper Confusion

It's been well documented that Rafa Benitez wants another goalkeeper here at Newcastle but this has been confused recently.

Tim Krul has been injured and then shipped out on loan. He has featured in none of our pre-season stuff and has been training with the youth players. He is also still here and taking up wages.

Matz Sels has been loaned out for the season with his move here almost certainly put down to experience and one where he was a gamble that failed with the championship seemingly a level too big for him never mind the forthcoming Premier League season.

Also still here is Karl Darlow who has been linked with a move to Middlesboro by all of the media.

He lost his number 1 spot in the side when Rob Elliot came back into the side in the last dregs of last season and Rafa seems to favour him for some reason. Darlow also got a shorter stint in friendly games until recently where he's getting a bit longer.

As it stands we have goalkeepers who dont know where they will be playing and an obvious need to get another one with something holding it all up.

Hopefully this is resolves sharpish or the politics may be the story of the season again.
