Brighton and Hove Albion have secured the permanent signing of Tim Krul only weeks after joining the club on a season-long loan from Newcastle United.

He however fell down the pecking order at the club and spent last season on loan with Ajax and AZ in his native Holland.

"Everyone at Newcastle United would like to thank Tim for his long service to the club, and wish him and his family well for the future".

Krul, capped eight times for his native Netherlands, made 16 appearances in his homeland before returning to England in hopes of regaining his place with the team.

Despite playing second fiddle to Australian worldwide Mathew Ryan, who has cemented himself as the team's first choice keeper, Krul appeared content enough to agree to join the club on a permanent transfer and will try to push his way into the starting line-up as often as possible this season.

"I've played nearly 160 games in the Premier League and hopefully I can continue that with Brighton".

Brighton lost 2-1 at Bournemouth in the Premier League on Friday night and 10 changes were made as the two teams played each other at the same venue in the League Cup.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton believes it is "key" his players adapt to recovering from disappointing results if they are going to be successful in the Premier League. The permanent deal also means that Krul is now available to play against his former club on Sunday.
