Another Englishman Gets Closer To The Newcastle Door

It seems that Dan Gosling’s move to Crystal Palace may be imminent, but while personal terms have been agreed with the London club, a fee is still to be negotiated between the Newcastle and Palace.

Dan Gosling – close to a move to Crystal Palace

Dan knows the Palace manager Ian Holloway very well, and when they were both at Plymouth Argyle six years ago, Holloway gave Gosling his professional debut when Dan was just 16 years old.

And Dan needs to play regularly to revive his career, and he’s been unable to break through to the first team at Newcastle over the last three seasons, but he should be able to get a lot of games at Palace.

David Hodgson is his agent, and this is what he told the Evening Chronicle today.

“He has had his talks with Crystal Palace and everything is agreed,” “We are not privy to how far the two clubs are apart.”

“The most important thing is for Dan to play football again and when your old manager comes in for you, and it is for a Premier League team, what better place to go?”

“Ian Holloway gave him his debut at 16, and helped him play for England’s youth teams. Dan is going to join somebody who knows him inside out.”

“Playing football is very, very important but finding the right glove to fit into is even more important.” “A permanent deal is the intention and all parties would be happy with that.”

Not sure what David means by finding the right glove to fit, maybe it’s finding the right club for Damn, and for the record Dan Gosling made 26 appearances for Newcastle with one goal, and he had only one Premier League start during his time with Newcastle.

Dan arrived from Everton on a free transfer three years ago this month.

    You’re under the common illusion that EVERYTHING is down to the manager. What sort of manager would Pardew be if he DIDN’T criticise the performances of his players for some of the atrocious performances of last season.

    Don’t you think Pardew got enough stick from the fans anyway? Only fair the players get their part of the criticism too.

    you say that but he was also part of the reason for most of our losses

    the club in its current state will be found out to be a poor excuse for a premier league side and only unswerving changes will correct that the only proof i have is what is blatantly obvious to 99.9% on here

    Black n white- in your opinion but that’s not my view. Much maligned but Jonas will still have a role to play. Albeit in a diminished way.

    Hard to judge someone who is injured so much but never really rated him as highly as some, think a lot of the hype he got was down to Rodwell playing so well and the 2 of them coming through at everton at the same time so they both got the hype.

    Looks like he could have an eye for goal from midfeild, maybe another Ambrose for the championship..

    surely getting rid of shola and bringing in one striker just leaves us in the same situation? siem is a central attacking midfield player, unless your suggesting pushing him up toa cf role behind the striker?

    I rated DG very highly, and was very excited when we signed him. For some reason, I don’t know, perhaps injury, confidence, lack of football, he just hasn’t cut the mustard for us, and it is right that we should allow him to leave and seek a team which will hopefully give him the playing time to rebuild his career. I wish him the best of luck, and regret the fact that he didn’t turn out to be the player I hoped he would be for us.

    He looked promising at Everton but the injuries have finished his career!

    He looks to slow now, especially for the yard of pace he needs to drop into the positions for the kind of player he is.

    MAYBE, just maybe he could work with pace all around him, but that wont happen at Newcastle.

    I feel sorry for him, as any time he has got always ended with a injury! Unfortunate not only for him, but for us too.

    I wish him all the best, he has never really complained despite the lack of chances when fit. I just feel had he not been injured he could have been something special.

    I hope he does well though! I wonder how much we get for him?! 1-2m would be enough I would imagine, probably the lower end of that so about 1.1 – 1.2m

    If Perch is older, had 1 year left on his contract, granted plays more and is worth 700k! Gosling still has potential though, still young enough to adapt so should expect more I would imagine!

    So from laat thread we’re looking at Sinclair, Sky Sports Davy Craig almost nailed us on signing Ince last week. So big pinches of salt until club photo with shirt appears. Either or both satisfies the need for home grown and/or experience.

    If we got both I could see marv moving on. Its all interesting stuff.

    Black n white- The point was that Jonas played a key role when it was vital that we got the 3 points against QPR. He didn’t bottle it!

    gosling coming on always made me cringe, his passing was wayward and constantly looked lost, spinning on the spot to try and figure where he should be at the time.

    i hope for his sake its down to the injuries and with a few more games he might look more promising but for me its not worth the risk. no doubt he will score against us, our ex players always seem to do so (except carrol… so far anyway)
