Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul has suffered a dislocated shoulder.

Krul broke down during Toon's 3-0 home defeat by Sunderland.

The Dutchman landed awkwardly after punching away an Adam Johnson free-kick and was immediately replaced by Rob Elliot in the second half of the Magpies' humiliating defeat to their bitter rivals this afternoon.

And Newcastle's afternoon took another turn for the worse when Pardew revealed he would be deprived of Krul's services for the Premier League run-in.
