TIM KRUL says he made the right move joining Albion from Newcastle.

And he is ready for his first Premier League appearance in more than two years if anything happens to No.1 Mathew Ryan.

Krul ended a 12-year association with Newcastle by switching to the Seagulls at the end of August.

The 29-year-old Dutch keeper has played second fiddle to the in-form Ryan but is convinced he made a wise choice switching to the south coast.

Krul told The Argus: “From what I’ve seen so far, 100 per cent. The facilities, the set up, the people, I could not have made a better decision, not only because it is six degrees warmer!

“I’m working hard every day to push Mat Ryan and Niki (Maenpaa) as well. He’s done great so far and we’re picking up points, that’s what it’s all about.

“If the gaffer needs us or Mat got injured, I need to be ready and literally it can happen any second.

“If you look at other clubs, Ben Foster got injured (for West Brom), the No.2 got injured, it’s around the corner.

“It’s a different position for myself, because I’m used to playing week in, week out, but I feel fit, I feel great and I feel I’m getting better every day again.”

Krul made the last of his 157 Premier League appearances for Newcastle in October 2015 before suffering cruciate knee ligament damage on international duty.

Moving the length of the country to reignite his career with Albion has been less of a wrench than he anticipated.

“It’s been easier than I expected,” he said. “Literally after two weeks I found a house for my little girl and family. They moved down straight away.

“The club did everything to sort things out and there’s no big timers. Everyone wants to help each other and everyone has one aim, staying in the league. It’s nice to be part of it.

“Ben Roberts is a top goalkeeping coach, so I really haven’t got any regrets.”
