Melbourne Heart defender Curtis Good is closing in on a move to Newcastle as he prepares to head to England for a medical.
The 19-year-old, a graduate of the Australian Institute of Sport, made 25 appearances for the club in his debut Hyundai A-League season.
Head coach John Aloisi told footballaustralia.com.au: "It's a fantastic opportunity for Curtis.
"Newcastle United is one of the biggest clubs in the United Kingdom, and we are absolutely delighted he has the opportunity to test his wares on such a stage."
It is understood that Good will go straight into the development squad at Newcastle and be given the opportunity to force his way into manager Alan Pardew's long-term plans.
