Newcastle Transfer Target Flies In With Work Permit

Newcastle United have at last landed one of their long standing targets as the promising centre-back, Curtis Good, has finally overcome the final hurdle and had his work permit approved.

The 19-year-old is expected to fly in this week to officially sign his contract and link up with Newcastle’s first-team squad.

Having already impressed on a trial at St.James’ Park, the player comes with the full backing and best wishes of his current/old head coach, John Aloisi, “It’s a fantastic opportunity for Curtis, Newcastle United is one of the biggest clubs in the United Kingdom and we are absolutely delighted he has the opportunity to test his wares on such a stage.

We wish Curtis well and hope he will one day return to don the red and white stripes of our club.”

The left footed centre back only signed a professional deal with Australian club Heart in February 2011 and made 24 A-League appearances, showing composure and maturity beyond his years at the back.

The deal is believed to be worth around £500,000 and Good joins the likes of Gael Bigirimana and Romain Amalfitano as Newcastle look to strengthen their next generation of players to hopefully progress into the first team.
