CURTIS Good has joined Dundee United on loan.

The Newcastle United defender will stay at the Scottish Premier League club until the end of the serason.

And the Austrailia Under-20 international could make his debut against Partick Thistle on Saturday.

Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara said, “Curtis comes to us highly recommended, and from a well respected club.

“He is left footed and can play as either a central defender or left back.

“These are areas that require cover, and it was important this was addressed during the window.

“He is 6ft 1in and strong, and should give a different option to the defenders already at the club.

“I am very happy to have this deal completed.

“It offers Curtis the opportunity to get some game time whilst enhancing our squad for the latter part of the season.”

Good, 20, had a loan spell at Bradford last season.
