New deals for Magpies duo

12 Jun 2007 - 17:12:34

Newcastle United have agreed new contracts with Nolberto Solano and Tim Krul.

Veteran Peruvian Solano has been handed a new 12-month deal, while Holland Under-21 international goalkeeper Krul has agreed terms on a four-year contract.

Solano, 32, made 48 appearances last season after being used as an emergency right-back for much of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Krul stepped up to the first team in November and starred in Newcastle's 1-0 UEFA Cup group stage victory in Palermo.

"I signed a four-year deal so I think that's a very good thing for me and for the club," the 19-year-old keeper told the club's official website.

"Newcastle is a massive club for me and I really want to stay there so I hope my future's there.

"Shay is a fantastic goalkeeper, one of the best and Steve Harper as well. It's a hard challenge for me but in a couple of years I hope I can challenge them.

"I'm allowed to go on loan for next season so we're looking for a club now.

"We're waiting for clubs, maybe Championship, we'll have to see."
