Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul has warned his teammates against the temptation of leaving for other Premier League teams following the club’s promotion from the EFL Championship.

Max Aarons, 19, and Ben Godfrey, 21, played instrumental roles in the club's Championship title, and have been scouted by Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United respectively.

However, former Newcastle United goalkeeper Krul says he plans to advise the youngsters against such moves.

Krul said: "We all know when the big money is going to be offered, heads are going to get turned.

"But if Manchester United come in at 19 or 20 years old, there is no point sitting on the bench.

"They have to play. I will tell them. The money will come to these lads.

"When you look at how well they have done this year, some of them were in the U23s last year and no-one knew about them.

"Now they are massively sought after talent and rightly so. Every credit being thrown at them, they deserve.

"But what a chance for them to play week in week out if they stay. I can't wait to see them on the big stage next year.

"Max Aarons is 19 now, can you imagine to have won the Championship and have a year behind him in the Premier League, that is more important than anything."
