NEWCASTLE UNITED defender Curtis Good has joined Scottish Premier League side Dundee United on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 20-year-old, who moved to St James' park on a six-year contract in July 2012, spent some of last season on loan at Bradford City.

He made a Capital One Cup appearance for Newcastle at Morecambe in August, and goes straight into the Dundee United squad for tomorrow's trip to Partick Thistle.

Dundee United boss 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."
