Newcastle United's transfer window signings have reinvigorated the first-team squad at St James' Park, according to keeper Tim Krul. The Magpies brought in five senior players during the window, all French, and their arrival was followed by back-to-back victories in the Premier League.

"It's incredible, I can't say it enough," Krul told BBC Newcastle.

"It can go either way with signings, it normally takes players time to settle but they've mingled straight away."
