Good, 20, Australian-born but holding a British passport, will go straight into manager Jackie McNamara's squad for the Partick Thistle game.

Good joined Newcastle in the summer of 2012 on a six-year deal from Melbourne Heart, before making his competitive debut for the Magpies in a League Cup match against Morecambe in August 2013. He spent time on loan at Bradford City last season and has been capped by Australia at U20 and U23 levels.

Manager Jackie McNamara said: "Curtis comes to us highly recommended and from a well respected club. He is left footed and can play as either a central defender or left back.

"These are areas that require cover and it was important this was addressed during the window.

"He is six foot one and strong and should give a different option to the defenders already at the club. I am very happy to have this deal completed; it offers Curtis the opportunity to get some game time whilst enhancing our squad for the latter part of the season."
