Luton Town are reportedly closing in on the signing of Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul despite bidding for Birmingham City man John Ruddy just days ago.

The Hatters have already signed Thomas Kaminski from Blackburn Rovers this summer but head coach Rob Edwards is keen on having another experienced option.

Reliable transfer news journalist Fabrizio Romano reports Luton have reached an agreement with Norwich to sign Krul with medical tests set to take place on Tuesday.

The transfer is expected to be completed within the next 24 hours after the former Netherlands international accepted personal terms with the Premier League outfit.

This news effectively puts an end to the Ruddy saga as Luton are very unlikely to sign three goalkeepers in one window, especially with other positions needing strengthening.

Ruddy was the subject of a £750,000 bid from the Hatters last week but Birmingham manager John Eustace made it clear he wanted to keep the 36-year-old at St Andrew’s.

BirminghamWorld also understands the former Wolverhampton Wanderers man is very happy at Blues and isn’t planning on leaving unless an offer he can’t refuse lands.
