Dan Gosling was signed from Everton as a free agent in June of 2010, and at thew time he was recovering from an ACL injury, but he has simply never made a breakthrough at Newcastle, and we will very likely see Dan leave the club this summer.
Dan Gosling – has loved life at Newcastle
There was some news that Newcastle would laon him out for next season, but why wouldn’t Newcastle try to sell him, with just one year left on his four year contract?
His agent David Hodgson has been talking about Dan, who seems to have just loved his three years at the Tyneside club:
“I have spoken to Newcastle and everything is technically up in the air,” ” “There should be a decision made in the next four or five days. Newcastle have to give the go ahead on where they would like Dan to go.”
“What he needs to do is play football,” “He knows he has got to win everyone over. He needs to play at the beginning of the season in somebody’s starting line-up.”
“Is that going to be at Newcastle? I don’t think so at the moment. He has a mountain to climb but he is not giving up. “He doesn’t want to leave. He has loved every single minute of it at Newcastle.”
Dan is only going to have a long-term future there if he is given the chance to perform every week.” “Villa’s interest came and went and it won’t be in Newcastle’s best interests to loan him to a club in the same league.”
“The relationship with the club is fantastic, although a footballer’s relationship with his club is always better when he is playing every week.” “He has never knocked on anybody’s door saying he wants to leave. He has worked and worked. He will get back to the level he was at.”
Gosling had a promising career ahead of him when he arrived at Newcastle three years ago, but that career has stalled significantly, and Dan’s played only 26 times for Newcastle with one goal in thee years , and doesn’t seem to be favored by manager Alan Pardew.
It’s best for Dan tif he leaves Newcastle for pastures anew, and try to get his career back on track, but we could still get a small fee for him, and Dan could be one of the players Joe Kinnear talked about as not being good enough for Newcastle.
He’s probably right, but Dan’s also been given very few chances at Newcastle.
