LOAN WATCH: Newcastle's Good needed Dundee United loan

Curtis Good has revealed that he was in need of a loan away from Newcastle United in order to gain regular minutes.

The 20-year old Australian defender joined Scottish side Dundee United on loan for the rest of the season on deadline day before making his full debut in central defence in the 1-1 at Partick Thistle on the weekend.

Good, who spent time with Bradford City last season, says the loan came about very quickly but he is happy to now get some game time under his belt as he looks to force his way into the Australian national team setup.

"It was all last minute really. I only found out Thursday, drove up Friday and played Saturday,'' Good, who was toying with the idea of joining A-League club, Central Coast Mariners, told the Herald Sun.

"It was all about playing games. I didn't really want to come back unless I had to.

"My preference was to play and stay here close to Newcastle where they can keep an eye on me.

"There were opportunities early in the season for me at Newcastle but I had a few ¬injuries and after a long lay-off I had fallen off the radar a bit so that's why I was looking for a loan.''

Of his Socceroos hopes, Good added: "I spoke to Ange (Postecoglou) briefly in the camp and he said you have to play first team football and that was my ambition above anything.

"I'm hoping this (Dundee move) puts me on the radar, if not for the World Cup, then in the future.''
