Newcastle Let Good Play At Wembley!
Toon teenager Curtis Good's dream of being a part of Bradford City's squad for next month's League Cup final has received a boost.
Newcastle United are prepared to extend his loan spell at the Yorkshire club.
Good played every minute in both legs of his side's semi-final upset of Premier League club Aston Villa – and is due to return to his parent club on 3 February.
It is unclear whether Bradford boss Phil Parkinson will seek to extend the defender's loan for a second time.
If he does, Newcastle, which has made a raft of transfer window signings, would not deny Good's desire to play at Wembley.
Good: “To be honest, it would be heartbreaking for me not to be a part of the final, especially after playing in both legs of the semi against Aston Villa.
“It was an amazing feeling to get past Villa, hard to describe really. I haven’t slept all night and I’m stilling buzzing about it. I would dearly love the chance to play in the final.
“The loan has already been extended once.
“The last time the two managers spoke and agreed to let me stay longer and I also had a say in it, so maybe something can be worked out again.
“I really hope so. It’s really a dream for all the Bradford boys to get to Wembley. First we beat Arsenal and now Villa and we deserve to be in the final.
“We knew Villa would throw everything at us in the second leg and that’s what happened. But we hung in there and actually played some really good football at times.
“It was tough early on but once we scored the equaliser we grew in belief and knew we could go on with the job.
“I don’t think it was a fluke, over the two legs we were good value for the result and being a part of it, seeing the fans go crazy, and seeing what it means to the club and the people of Bradford is really special for me.
“To stay on and see it through and to go to Wembley, well, that would be a dream come true for me.”
