Newcastle United are moving closer to completing a deal for Australian defender Curtis Good, following a successful trial with the club in June.
Good, 19, played 25 times for Melbourne Heart last season and will fly to England on Wednesday night to undergo a medical. Having already been granted a work permit, Good is expected to enter Newcastle's elite development squad.
The move also represents Newcastle's second teenage acquisition of the summer, following the arrival of Gael Bigirimana from Coventry City.
Speaking on the club's official website, Heart manager John Aloisi said: "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.
"While Curtis will certainly be missed, his proposed transfer is a great affirmation of our youth policy, and a demonstration of the club's ability to assist in developing players to such an extent that they're able to move to one of Europe's leading competitions."
A ball-playing defender, Good signed his first professional contract in February 2011. The transfer is expected to net Heart around £400,000.
