Newcastle Interested In Robbin Ruiter Transfer According To Reports From Holland

8 years ago

Seventeen days into the transfer window and Robbin Ruiter of Utrecht is the latest player Newacstle United have been linked with.

The 26 year old goalkeeper has other Dutch clubs interested but is said to want a move to the Premier League.

Swansea and Newcastle are claimed to be interested in the 6ft 5 keeper, both clubs of course already having Dutch keepers in Tim Krul and Michel Vorm, who Swansea actually got from Utrecht.

Ruiter has impressed since a half a million euros move from Volendam.

The Utrecht keeper is reported to be keen to try and force his way into the Dutch World Cup squad for Brazil and so fancies a bigger stage to show his talents.

With no caps as yet, it would appear unlikely that Ruiter stands much chance of making that squad considering the strength that Holland have in that department.

Inevitably, these reports surrounding a possible Newcastle move for a keeper means the speculation surrounding Tim Krul’s future all starts up again.
