Krul is currently recovering from a dislocated shoulder that he picked up in April which forced him to miss the final few weeks of last season.

The Dutchman, who has been linked with a possible move to Arsenal, is hopeful he be will ready to feature in a few pre-season games to prove his fitness ahead of their opening Premier League game against Manchester City on August 19.

"I will be fit for the first game of the season [against Manchester City]," said Krul.

"I'll try to get a couple of friendly games to get myself fully up to speed - and I'm right on schedule."
