Sky Sports is reporting that it’s their understanding that Dan Gosling’s protracted move to Newcastle will be carried out, and done and dusted with 24 hours.
Dan Gosling – a Newcastle player very soon
Free-transfer Gosling has left the Goodison Park club, after Everton amazingly missed the deadline to offer him a new contract in mid-May.
And there is news that Everton have also failed in a bid to take the case to a tribunal, where a compensation fee would have been put on the player, and the Newcastle club would have had to pay that.
So if these reports are true Newcastle will get the player for free, with a deal either four or five years, depending on which news reports you believe, and a very decent wage being paid to Dan.
Newcast;le beat West Ham and Sunderland for the player, and it looks like Gosling was only too willing to join the Tyneside club.
Gosling is recovering from an ACL knee injury and will be fit sometime towards the end of the year.
