There’s news in the Chronicle that Curtis Good has returned to the club after he failed to impress on a trial in Holland at Eredivisie club PEC Zwolle.
So Curtis still has to be moved out this summer, and maybe we could get a loan for Good’s final year of his six-year contract he signed way back in 2012 when he was signed from Melbourne Heat.
Since then Curtis has made only two appearances for the first team.
There is also news that Massadio Haidara will not be moving to St, Etienne because the rumor is that he has failed the medical – but it seems the real reason is the wages the club are offering aren’t what he’s getting at Newcastle.

Here’s another problem we continually have – players don’t want to leave Newcastle for lower wages elsewhere which is one reason they would like to take loan moves., so they still get the high wages Newcastle pay them – often paid by the club they are on loan to.
On their loan moves, they usually continue to get the high wages Newcastle pay them – often partially paid by the club they are on loan to.
And there was news last week that Emmanuel Riviere turned down a move to Metz probably based on the terms he was offered.
We need to get these players off the books somehow, and because they have been playing poorly, they cannot expect fabulous wages at other clubs.
But there again it’s their legal right to see out their contracts at Newcastle – unfortunately.
Rafa and Lee Charnley need to move unwanted players out of the club such as Tim Krul, Sadio Haidara, Manu Riviere, Henri Saivet, Grant Hanley, Achraf Lazaar and others and with one month to go that is going to be a difficult task.
It must be frustrating for Lee and Rafa when a deal is struck to transfer a player that he then turns it down because of the terms offered to him.
But that’s football we suppose.
