Curtis Good, the 19 year-old Melbourne Heart center-back could still be interesting Newcastle, after he spent a couple of weeks in a trial at Newcastle last April.
Curtis Good – could end up on Tyneside – soon
Don’t like that strip though
At that time Curtis returned to Australia after his trial, and we thought Newcastle must have lost interest in the player, but that may be a wrong conclusion, with reports in Australia that Newcastle are still interested in the 6’2″ tall youngster.
The Herald Sun in Melbourne reported yesterday that Newcastle asked Good’s club what the asking price for him was, and the expectations are that Newcastle will lodge a bid for the 19 year-old.
And it’s though that a bid for around $600K would seal the deal.
Melbourne Heart football manager John Didulica has this to say yesterday:
“We are planning for Curtis to stay with the club, but if a suitable offer comes we won’t stand in his way.” “We haven’t received anything for a few weeks, but they indicated they were still considering him as an option.”
“They’ve left the door open to put a proposal forward for us to consider, but it’s always difficult at big clubs because they look to conclude the big signings first – and Euro 2012 has probably held the process up a bit also.”
Good’s representative, Zeljko Susa hoped a deal would be struck (that’s a surprise):
“It would be a fantastic opportunity for Curtis.” “Discussions are ongoing and we are hopeful of a positive outcome.”
So we shouldn’t be too surprised if Curtis Good is on his way to Newcastle after all, and he only joined Heart in February of last year, but was soon the first choice center-back, and appeared in 25 games for the club last season.
Maybe he will become the next Australian to make a name of himself in the Premier League – hope so.
