Since Newcastle were the first club to talk to Dan Gosling about his future last Wednesday, when Dan visited the Benton training grounds, there has been an almighty rush for the free agent’s signature.
Dan Gosling – talking with other clubs
Dan was in London on Friday discussing a move with West Ham, and Sunderland have also entered the race for the 20 year-old very promising midfielder.
But there is other news that even more PL clubs are due to speak with the Devon-born player over the next day or two, and Dan is expected to announce his decision within 48 hours.
It’s very likely that other clubs will offer a bigger wage deal than the Newcastle club will, but Gosling has said he will decide his future more on football reasons than money reasons – we’ll see.
And news in the Sunday Sun that Dan has held a second round of talks with Newcastle on Friday, so there may still be a chance, and of course Dan will also have a better chance to get first team games at Newcastle at the moment, than at other clubs.
One way to look at it, is that if Dan chooses another club, it probably will be the bigger money that was the pull, whatever he says, but if that’s the way it goes, he was probably not the right player for Newcastle.
But we have to hope that Dan will choose Newcastle United, for all the right reasons.
