Curtis Good has completed the final hurdle of his move to English Premier League outfit Newcastle United after having his work permit approved.
Goal.com understands that the 19-year-old will fly to England in the coming days to officially sign his contract and link up with Newcastle's first-team squad.
The defender trialled with the club for over a week in June and impressed manager Alan Pardew enough to win a permanent deal, subject to a transfer fee being agreed between the two clubs and the granting of a work permit.
"Newcastle formally wrote to us and they were extremely positive about Curtis' time there and him as a person and that reflects well on the club and the A-League," Melbourne Heart's football operations manager John Didulica said after his trial concluded.
Good - left-footed and comfortable on the ball - only signed a professional deal with Heart in February 2011, but stood out with his composure in his 24 A-League appearances during the 2011-12 season.
Good's move will earn Heart a reported AU$600,000.
