Good loan deal for Bradford

Bradford City have extended the loan deal of Newcastle United’s

teenage defender Curtis Good by a further month.

Good initially joined Bradford in November and he has made three

appearances during his time with the League Two club.

He will now stay at Valley Parade until February 2 and

Bradford’s assistant manager Steve Parkin is happy to have retained

the Australian.

“Curtis is a really talented individual and a smashing lad,”

said Parkin in the Telegraph & Argus. “We’ve seen him play a

couple of really good games and he came on at Morecambe and did

well at left back for us.

“We’re thin on the ground with defenders and he’s left footed

which helps because he can play two positions.”

The 19-year-old joined Newcastle on a six-year contract from

Melbourne Heart last summer, but he has yet to make a first-team

appearance for the Premier League club.
