Newcastle keeper Krul eager to hear from Tottenham

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew faces a battle to hold onto goalkeeper Tim Krul.

The Journal says Krul is understood to have been alarmed at being dropped from the Dutch squad in the weeks before the World Cup and, although he did manage to regain his place in time for Brazil, an unhappy second half of the season has led to him questioning his future at the club..

He is fully aware that he is on Tottenham's short-list of replacements if keeper Hugo Lloris leaves this summer.

Although a succession plan for Krul has been drawn up - and Newcastle tried to sign his compatriot Joreon Zoet last summer - they do not want to have to add a goalkeeper to their summer shopping list at short notice.
