Robinson Loans Good
City boss Phil Parkinson has made his second loan swoop of the day this Thursday afternoon by agreeing a deal with Premier League side Newcastle United for the temporary transfer of central defender Curtis Good.
Good, 19, has put pen to paper on a loan deal with City that will keep him at the Coral Windows Stadium until 2 January 2013.
Subject to receiving the relevant clearances, the Australian will then be given the green light to take his place in City’s travelling party for their npower League 2 fixture at Bristol Rovers this weekend.
The 6′ 1” left-footer will wear squad number 27 during his time at Valley Parade.
Good’s arrival will see the Melbourne-born defender act as a direct replacement for John Egan following the Irishman’s broken leg suffered this week while on loan from Newcastle’s North East rivals Sunderland.
With the loan window due to shut at 5:00pm this Thursday evening until January, Good’s move to City is Parkinson’s second deal of the day after earlier borrowing winger Blair Turgott from West Ham United.
After a busy day of deal-breaking, Parkinson declared himself happy with the outcome of his hard work.
“I’m pleased that we have been able to bring in two talented young players in Blair Turgott and Curtis Good,” said Parkinson.
“I’m sure they will add a lot to the squad, which is going to be important to us ahead of another busy period of fixtures.
“With three out of our next four matches after Saturday cup ties, it was key that we brought in players who could help us in the cup competitions.
“The signings of Blair and Curtis is the culmination of a lot of hard work behind the scenes to make sure we have the cover needed in the right areas for the games ahead.”
Good joined Newcastle on a six-year deal last summer from A League side Melbourne Heart.
The 19 year-old made 25 appearances for Heart the previous season after graduating from the famed Australian Institute of Sport in 2010.
Good, who has won caps at Under 20 level for Australia, has captained Newcastle Under 21s on a number of occasions this season and travelled with the first-team squad for their Capital One Cup tie at Manchester United in September this year.
