Transfer Talk: Magpie attracts suitors


They shoot...


Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul is being monitored by a host of Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Portsmouth, Wigan, Hull and local rivals Sunderland.

The 20-year-old Netherlands Under-21 international produced an impressive display after coming on as a half-time substitute for for the injured Steve Harper during the Magpies' draw at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Zenden hopeful of return

Former Liverpool, Chelsea and Middlesbrough midfielder Boudewijn Zenden claims he is in talks with Premier League clubs. The former Dutch international, currently a free agent after leaving Marseilles earlier this summer, is hopeful of securing a move before the start of the season on Saturday. "Hull, Blackburn and Portsmouth have expressed an interest and I am in talks with those clubs," the 32-year-old, who spent six years in England between 2001 and 2007, claimed "but I have not decided anything yet."

They score...
