Krul: Everyone speaking English at Newcastle

Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul says the players speak English around the club.

Krul revealed the existing squad have helped welcome the arrivals.

The Dutch star said: "Some of them don't really speak much English yet so we have to help them. That will take a few weeks but football language isn't that difficult. It's given everyone a massive lift.

"It gives extra competition for places, instead of taking things for granted. We'd been just happy to get 11 on the pitch and a bench. We've definitely got strength in depth now. I'm just impressed by the quality.

"It doesn't matter what country they come from."
