Melbourne Heart defender Curtis Good is poised to land a contract with English Premier League club Newcastle United after he impressed in a ten day trial.

19-year-old Good was outstanding in his debut Hyundai A-League season where he made 25 appearances and with an EPL giant knocking at his door Heart's resolve to keep him will be tested when the Magpies make a bid.

Good's trial was extended and he spent the last few days training with the senior side, under the guidance of manager Alan Pardew.

Newcastle's offer is expected to be for a senior contract rather than a reserve team deal.

"Newcastle formally wrote to us and they were extremely positive about Curtis's time there and him as a person and that reflects well on the club and the A-League," Didulica reportedly said.
