“I definitely will be moving on," Good told Fox Sports Australia. It’ll be good for a change, obviously getting back to playing senior football is the biggest thing for me, the next step.

“I definitely want to stay in the UK. I want to give it another crack at the highest level. I feel like I had a great opportunity that was upset with my situation.

“It’ll be nice to go trial somewhere if the opportunity comes up.

"The biggest thing is people seeing that you can play, and I’ve played over 20 games this season.

“I’d like to come home, but maybe when I’m older.”

Good signed from Melbourne Heart in 2012.

“A big thing from my perspective is I associate a lot of my time at Newcastle with this injury, and maybe subconsciously people do here as well, and that’s a big reason I’m looking for a change,’’ said the Australia international.

“I’ve had so many years here on the physio table and you’re just looking for that change, you don’t want to be known as the player who was injured.

“I have no issue whatsoever. If I got called up (to the first team) tomorrow, I could sit in there and do a job.

"But people get opportunities ahead of you, and you’re chasing.”
