Chelsea transfer news: Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul rejected move to Stamford Bridge last summer

Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul rejected the chance to sign for Chelsea last summer, opting for a move to the Championship instead.

The former Newcastle shot-stopper was not keen on a move to Stamford Bridge as he did not want to spend his time there on the bench, according to Dutch outlet Voetbal Zone.

Krul, 31, instead chose to join the Canaries… and it proved to be the correct decision.

The glovesman has played every second of Norwich’s successful 2018/19 campaign, which has seen the Carrow Road club secure promotion back to the Premier League. They only have to avoid defeat in their final match of the season to guarantee going up as second division champions, ahead of runners-up Sheffield United.
