Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be disappointed with the defeat to Everton on Monday night, although they will be delighted that their club will remain in the Premier League next season.
The locals will be expecting the team to strengthen during the summer, whilst also hoping that they can convince manager Rafa Benitez to sign a new deal to remain at the club in the long-term as they hope to see the good times brought back to the North East after years of struggles.
However, one player has revealed he will leave St James’ Park, namely 25-year-old defender Curtis Good.
The Australia international has found life difficult in the North East since joining the Magpies six years ago, and has told the Fox Sports Australia that he will be calling time with the Toon Army at the end of the campaign. The 24-year-old enforcer has suffered a number of injuries and wants to get his career back on track, but he doesn’t feel that it is doable with the Magpies.
He told Fox Sports Australia: ‘I definitely will be moving on. It’ll be good for a change, obviously getting back to playing senior football is the biggest thing for me, the next step.
‘I definitely want to stay in the UK. I want to give it another crack at the highest level. I feel like I had a great opportunity that was upset with my situation.’
Thus, it appears that Good’s testing six-year stint in the North East, which has yielded just two senior appearances, will come to an end this summer, but what his next career step is very much remains to be seen.
Landlord’s Verdict: Newcastle fans in the Tavern will be disappointed things did not work out for the 25-year-old who was brought to St James’ Park with promise, although they will wish him the best for where ever he ends up next.
