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.
