Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul is set to join Ajax on loan for the rest of the season, according to Sky sources.

Krul is expected to have a medical on Thursday - but it is expected Newcastle will extend his contract until 2018 before he moves.

The deal is part of a merry-go-round of international keepers around Europe.

Krul is expected to replace Barcelona-bound Jasper Cillessen at Ajax. Barca are signing Cillessen to replace Claudio Bravo who is in England discussing terms with Manchester City.
