The Evening Chronicle have claimed that Curtis Good cost Newcastle United a whopping £1.8million in wages during his time at St. James' Park, after finally being released this summer.

Good, 25, joined Newcastle back in the summer of 2012 from Australian A-League side Melbourne Heart, but he failed to make an impact during his six-year spell on Tyneside.

Indeed, Good cost the club a huge £900,000 an appearance, after only playing two times for Newcastle - once in the FA Cup against Oxford United in January 2017, and once in the Carabao Cup against Morcambe in August 2013.

The report claims that his £6,000-a-week wages saw him waste almost £2million of the Toon's coffers, and now the one-time Australia international is on trial with League One side Blackpool.

Good is on the lookout for a new club after his contract finally came to an end at Newcastle, and Blackpool are said to be taking a look at the centre-back before considering a move.

One thing is for sure, though, is that Newcastle have finally rid themselves of a player that was a huge waste of money.
