Curtis Gets Bradford Compassionate Leave

Last updated : 29 January 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

The Newcastle defender’s current spell at Valley Parade is due to finish after this coming weekend’s trip to Fleetwood.


Alan Pardew: “He is staying (at Bradford). He has to play really well to stay in the team as well.

“I expect to see him at the cup final but if I don’t, he’ll have to be on the bench. But hopefully he’ll play.

“It’s brilliant. One of our squad is having a fantastic season – and good luck to him.

“He’s not ready for us, in my opinion, but what a great introduction he’s had to British football.

“When Curtis comes back in the summer, I expect him to be really pushing, but it’s right where he is right now – for Bradford and for us.”
