Krul had a rough season for Newcastle, who allowed the second most goals in the Premier League en route to a narrow escape from relegation.

The 27-year-old did keep eight clean sheets in his 30 appearances, but he was simply beaten too easily on many occasions. Newcastle will undoubtedly look at bringing in another goalkeeper this summer and it remains to be seen what Krul's role will be in 2015-16.

Krul made four saves but allowed five goals during Newcastle's 5-0 loss to Manchester City on Saturday.

Krul has now allowed multiple goals in three of his last six matches, with just one clean sheet over that span. Up next is a fairly promising home matchup against Aston Villa, though the visitors have been a little more attack-minded under new manager Tim Sherwood.

Krul made seven saves during Newcastle's 3-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.

Krul's clean sheet came against much lesser competition than his last two matches, which came against Southampton and Chelsea. Thankfully for fantasy owners, he's got a decent opportunity next Sunday at home against Stoke City.

Krul (ankle) returned to the pitch against Chelsea on Saturday, although he only made two stops during the 2-0 loss.

Krul hadn't played a Premier League match since Nov. 22 against QPR. Despite that long absence, he has five clean sheets over 13 appearances and looks to have recovered from the ankle injury that kept him sidelined.

Krul (ankle) played 45 minutes in an U21 match Thursday and looks likely to return Saturday against Chelsea.

Krul has had some very good games against top opponents over the last two seasons, though coming back against arguably the Premier League's best side after six weeks out makes him a very risky fantasy option.

Krul (ankle) has returned to first-team training and could start against Chelsea on Saturday, the Newcastle Chronicle reports.

Jak Alnwick has been starting in place of Krul, who hasn't played since November. It's a tough matchup for Krul to return to and will be followed by a home match against Southampton.

Krul may be sidelined for up to six weeks with ligament damage in his ankle, BBC Sport reports.

Krul was unable to play in Saturday's contest against West Ham and seems to be out for the near future. Fellow goalkeeper Rob Elliott will continue to be the next man up during Krul's absence from the pitch.

Krul picked up a knock in training this week and could miss Saturday's match against West Ham, Chronicle Live reports.

Krul has kept three consecutive clean sheets, though the matchup against West Ham this weekend figures to be a tough one. If he is unable to play, Robert Elliott figures to get the start.
