The 29-year-old has been training at United's Academy since the middle of last month.

Manager Rafa Benitez told Krul – who has a year left on his contract – to find a new club after he reported back for the start of pre-season training.

Krul had loan spells at AZ Alkmaar and Ajax last season.

And he will be reunited with former Newcastle manager Chris Hughton at the Amex Stadium.
