Dan Gosling was at the Newcastle training center at Benton today, as the new Newcastle signing is the current Toast of the Toon.
Dan Gosling – glad to be at Newcastle United
Dan will wear the number 15 Newcastle shirt, and has had his name emblazoned across the back of the shirt today.
This is only the second real signing of the summer, following the capture of James Perch from Forest, but they are two good signings for different reasons, one a defender and one a midfielder.
Of course there is news of four or five possible signings almost every day now. 😀
The 20-year-old, who was born in Brixham, Devon (we had said Plymouth earlier – that was an error- apologies), can also play at full-back.
He has some months still left ion his recovery of an ACL injury to his knee he picked up at the end of March – in what was his last game for the Merseyside club.
Dan Gosling – sustains bad knee injury on 27th March
The midfielder ruptured his cruciate knee ligament after a clash with the Wolverhampton goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann, in the closing minutes of the 0-0 draw – and the assessment was that he would be out for up to 9 months – which basically says he’ll come back at the end of this year.
But it could be earlier than that, since he has been making a good recovery from all reports.
