Newcastle United have reported they have finally completed the signing of former Everton midfielder Dan Gosling.
Dan Gosling – it’s a brilliant move for me
We had mentioned this morning that Sky Sports had said the deal would be tied up within 24 hours, and the Newcastle club have completed a phenomenal signing.
Gosling, 20, has signed a four-year contract at St James’ Park to become the second new signing this summer following the reeling in of James Perch from Nottingham Forest.
Gosling to his new club’s official website.
“It’s a brilliant move for me. Now that the deal is done I just can’t wait to get started,””I’ve played at St James’ Park before and know all about the amazing atmosphere.”
“Playing there in a black and white shirt is something I’ve thought about already and it will be a great day when I finally get to walk out in front of 50,000 people.”
“The gaffer Chris Hughton and all of the lads have been great with me and made me feel really welcome since I arrived and hopefully I can repay the faith that they’ve shown in me.”
Terrific comments from Dan, and he the type of emotional player that the crowd could well lift into some great performances for the Tyneside club.
And it looks like kevin Nolan and company have already ensured that Dan is made welcome at the club – and if this is player power – we are all for it!
