New Luton Town goalkeeper Tim Krul is excited at the opportunity of adding to his 222 Premier League appearances after signing for the Hatters on Friday morning.
The Netherlands international said: “I’m really excited to be here. It was a long day yesterday (Wednesday) and today (Thursday) with a lot of paperwork and tests, but I’m pleased it’s all done and I’m ready to get going.
“The story of Luton Town speaks for itself, the last nine years has been an amazing journey and I’m excited to join that journey. It’s been a whirlwind for the club, I spoke to Carlton Morris and he spoke very highly about what’s happening at this club.
“I had a great chat with Rob Edwards and Kevin Pilkington, being a family club and being together really was a big reason for joining.
“The goalkeeper union is a thing and I’ve known the goalies here from playing against them over the years. I know Thomas Kaminski as well, it’s good to speak a bit of Dutch Flemish to him. It’s so important to have competition for places, if you look at the Premier League teams, they have lots of competition for spots and it should be no different here.
“You are a lot busier as a goalkeeper in the Premier League than you are in the Championship, the quality difference of the opposition is huge as it’s the best league in the world. I couldn’t let this opportunity go to have the chance to be back playing at the highest level.”
