Newcastle boss Pardew tells Good: Just make sure you stay in Bradford XI!
The Aussie defender is in line to play in the Capital One Cup final against Swansea City at Wembley next month.
Pardew said: "Curtis is staying. He has to play bloody well to stay in the team as well. I expect to see him at the cup final, but if I don't we'll have to wear that on the bench. Hopefully he'll play.
"It's brilliant. One of our squad is having a fantastic season and good luck to him. He's not ready for us, in my opinion. But what a great introduction he's had to British football.
"When Curtis comes back in the summer I expect him to be really pushing. It's right where he is right now, right for him, for Bradford and for us."
