Sources: Tim Krul undergoing Luton Town medical as permanent deal agreed

Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul is undergoing a medical at Luton Town on Tuesday (15 August) after agreeing to join the newly-promoted side, sources have told Football Insider.

The 35-year-old will join the Hatters on a permanent basis.

Norwich were open to letting Krul leave the club this summer after he was surpassed by Angus Gunn in the pecking order in the middle of the 2022-23 campaign.

The veteran was in the final year of his contract at Carrow Road.

He was on the bench for both of Norwich’s Championship fixtures so far – including in the 4-4 draw with Southampton on Saturday (12 August).

However, Krul is now set for a role in the Premier League once again – although it is not clear if he will be first-choice, or understudy to fellow new arrival Thomas Kaminski.

Kaminski, 30, joined the Hatters from Blackburn earlier this month after also falling down the pecking order at Ewood Park last term.

Meanwhile, Krul made 17 appearances across all competitions in 2022-23, conceding 19 goals and keeping five clean sheets before being replaced between the sticks by Gunn.

The 15-cap Netherlands international, who played at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, last played in the Premier League for Norwich in the 2021-22 campaign.

He has racked up 222 total appearances in the English top flight across spells with the Canaries and Newcastle United – conceding 371 goals and keeping 52 clean sheets in those games.

Luton lost their first-ever Premier League game on Saturday (12 August) with Brighton beating them 4-1 at the Amex Stadium.

The Hertfordshire side next face Chelsea later this month (25 August).
