Former Newcastle Chairman Freddy Shepherd is looking into the possibility of taking legal action against the father of Newcastle keeper, Tim Krul.

Shepherd runs Triple S Sports & Entertainment along with son Kenneth and Paul Stretford.

The company having acted as agents for Tim Krul as well as employing the keeper’s dad as a scout in the Netherlands.

However, Tim Krul has now moved over to the Wasserman Media Group which has led to renewed speculation that the Newcastle number one may have made that move in advance of another one in the summer…

The switch of agents hasn’t gone down well with Shepherd and co, with Paul Stretford revealing that they are considering the possibility of taking legal action against Krul senior, for allegedly arranging the change of agents whilst being employed by the Shepherds and Stretford, claiming a possible breach of contract.

Paul Stretford provided the following statement to the Chronicle:

‘We are disappointed that Tim has not renewed his contract with our company, but most of all we are disappointed for both Freddy and Kenneth Shepherd who have looked after the lad above and beyond the call of duty and since he was a young player first coming over to England from Holland.

They have sorted out housing on several occasions.

Tim is on an excellent contract at Newcastle United and I doubt there will be many willing to match it.

Let’s see what the future holds for him. I can’t really say too much more as we are considering taking legal actions against his father Peter to setting up alternative representation for his son while being employed as a scout in Holland for our company.’
