From Melbourne Heart to Newcastle United
Melbourne Heart had three young studs in Eli Babalj, Curtis Good and Brendan Hamill.
Babalj sealed an eye-catching move to Red Star Belgrade, after being swayed by a phone call from the great Robert Prosinečki.
Hamill was pragmatic in his decision to play in a better league whilst receiving higher wages with South Korean club Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma.
Good convinced Newcastle United how good a prospect he is.
During his short stay at the Heart, the 19-year-old showed composure beyond his years, as he played out from the back.
He’s comfortable with the ball at his feet, having been a midfielder and a forward during his youth days.
As long as he listens to Newcastle management and trains hard, he’ll receive opportunities to break into the first XI.
Newcastle’s scouting department receive high marks again, because they’ve signed one of Australia’s best young talents for $600,000, which is approximately £404,000.
Low risk, high reward.
