Manchester United shot-stopper Victor Valdes is open to a move to Premier League outfit Newcastle United. 

This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the veteran could replace the injured Tim Krul at St James' Park. 

Krul ruptured an anterior cruciate knee ligament on international duty for Holland last week and now looks set to miss the remainder of the season.

With Krul on the sidelines, it appears that Valdes could yet depart Manchester in favour of a move to Newcastle in the near future. The former Barcelona man has endured a torrid time on English soil, but, according to the same report, still holds hope of plying his trade in the Premier League.  

In fact, the Mirror say that United would be open to releasing the player to any club that isn't a direct rival. 

Ideal move

Ultimately, it appears to be the perfect fit. Newcastle are in desperate need of a replacement for Krul and Valdes would offer a great deal of experience to the Premier League strugglers. 

The 33-year-old is in desperate need of getting back on the pitch sooner rather than later and he would become the No.1 at St James' Park immediately. 

Releasing Valdes to Newcastle certainly wouldn't harm United, who won't be utilising him under the Louis van Gaal regime.
