Newcastle Midfielder Discussions Ongoing – Fee Not Agreed

9:16 pm, Thursday, July 11th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 26 Comments

It seems that Newcastle and Crystal Palace are still working on a deal that could see Dan Gosling, the England U21 International midfielder, leave Newcastle after three seasons on Tyneside, where he has failed to cement his place in the Newcastle first team, after signing as a free agent from Everton.

Dan Gosling – 23 year-old Newcastle midfielder

Dan is obviously keen to get regular first-team football again, and resurrect his career, which looked bright when he joined Newcastle three years ago.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew had this to say yesterday about a possible Gosling move:

“There is a possibility Dan could move on, and we’re talking to a club at the moment.”

Crystal Palace Co-Chairman Steve Parish says that a fee between the two clubs has still has to be agreed:

“No terms have been agreed, because we haven’t got an agreement with Newcastle United,” “There have been a few conversations with them. Not on a fee, just details.”

“Nothing has been agreed, it’s something we’ve made an enquiry about.”

If the Gosling deal does go through Dan will be reunited with the manager who gave him his professional first team debut at Plymouth seven years ago – Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway.

Dan made his debut for Plymouth in December 2006, at the age 16 years and 310 days, against Hull City, and came on as a first-half substitute for injured Captain Paul Wotton.

Dan really needs to move on from Newcastle, and get first team football elsewhere, preferably the Premier League, so he can get his career back on track.

Comments welcome.

    Don’t rate him at all. Injury prone and looked poor whenever I have seen him.

  • 2 FatmanJoe // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:20 PM

    It’s a shame because he seemed to arrive with loads of promise and it just never happened for him here. I expect he’ll shine at Palace though.

  • 3 Toon_Tom // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:22 PM

    I spoke very highly of him upon arrival. Due to injures, not given a proper chance, cameo roles with minutes to play, I would probably admit that we have destroyed his footballing career 😉

    Thank you kindly Torq – when Ibiza gets out of the San Antonio clubs in a few hours, out of his mind on powder and euphoric capsules, I shall ask if I can enter your mysterious world

    I am glad people have stopped making sly remarks. It is in human nature to disagree, cause controversy and debate – however personal jibes and insults should not be handed out. We are all part of the Nufc community and all wish for the same thing (entertaining football, not MA out) so let’s sometimes simply agree to disagree without getting all personal.

    You f’ing DikheaD$ 😉

  • 6 Versace101 // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:24 PM

    what a waste of time this guy was! everton knew he was a not good enough hence they got rid… we need to be more aggressive in the market! no more fringe players lets buy the quality and strength sick of weak pussy players!

  • 7 Charlietoon // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:24 PM

    Hopefully this explains him getting game time over the others at the end of the season. In the shop window like.

  • 8 FatmanJoe // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:24 PM

    I agree we have ruined him a bit. He didn’t try hard in training though I heard, or have I made that up? Sure I remember something like that mentioned.

  • 9 TorqToon // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:24 PM

    Tom – Are YOU on powder and euphoric capsules?!?!

    Agree to disagree…..?!?? I’ll have some of what you are having, my friend ! 🙂

  • 10 Belfast // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:25 PM

    I agree with Fatman.
    He’ll probably go there stay fit and do well.
    He was a good player before he joined us.

  • 11 gonufc (not Arf' bad) // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:26 PM

    @John Tudor – could you please write everything in one post and then wait for a reply?

    Because at the moment the whole blog is looking like a disjointed collection of your insults! lol

    It’s a bit like “….and one other thing…..”

    Not having a go it’d just make it easier to read.

  • 12 Belfast // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:28 PM

    Everton didn’t want to get rid of him.
    They were actually furious that he left for nothing

  • 13 Toon_Tom // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:28 PM

    Fatman – you probably made that up 😉 but I can see it happening. Even Gosling himself, I’m sure, would have thought he had a big big career infront of him, then approached by a MASSIVE club like Newcastle, he probably thought he was made!!!

    Then didn’t start, didn’t really get any decent performances in, dropped, then injured, then fit, unplayed – so his moral would have been shot-to-shit I think. He will probably do a job for palace to be honest – I hope so at least as I think he is one of the lower minority who doesn’t base his football on the 00000000’s in the bank account. Seemed like a god lad, just unfortunate with us.

  • 14 FatmanJoe // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:29 PM

    Yeah and the Everton fans were banging on about it ages afterwards. They laughed their asses off when he flopped here because they felt like he betrayed them.

  • 15 Toon_Tom // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:30 PM

    ^ “God lad” = good lad 😉

    Unless JFK is his father he isn’t worthy of a Devine title!!!

  • 16 John Tudor // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:30 PM

    plain and simply i can’t. just skip them as they are obviously rantings of a deranged psychopathic nutter like torq implies in his ramblings

  • 17 Sazzer // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:30 PM

    Benjamin Corgnet signs for St.Etienne. Low budget guy we were linked with.

    Fulham might get new owners and sign up De Jong.

  • 18 FatmanJoe // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:31 PM

    One of my best mates is a toffee and he wants him back again. Kinda regret that it didn’t work out of for him as we should be developing young talent, not ruining it. Seems like we’re doing the latter increasingly as the years go by.

  • 19 Toon_Tom // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:31 PM

    Torq – the only powder I come in contact with now is the saw dust left by Mr Tudor when he is chasing one of you guys down 😉

  • 20 Belfast // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:32 PM

    I think he probably would of got more of a chance if Hughton didn’t get the boot like.

    Then again anytime he did play he got injured lol

  • 21 Toon_Tom // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:33 PM

    Farman > agreed – that’s what I mean. We have a habit of not opening individuals true potential

    Look at the silly amounts of players we had, who didn’t play well atall, didn’t look interested, left us, and then peeked!

  • 22 ENNYOUEFFSEE // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:35 PM

    Good talent gone to waste. Too many injuries. Think he will be a good buy for palace and will get the correct playing time.

  • 23 TorqToon // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:35 PM

    Tom – You must be nearly choked to death, mate! Do you have an inhaler? Haha

  • 24 John Tudor // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:36 PM

    tom its rubber i use wheels of steel

  • 25 Versace101 // Jul 11, 2013 at 9:38 PM

    We should seriously be looking at a striker with strength upfront cisse cant keep the ball up!! specially when we are statistically the long ball merchants of the premier league… which doesnt work hence finishing 17th.. play on the ground the right way but if route 1 isnt working then we need a long ball type striker to change things up! remy nor bent wont provide this!! id prefer siem de jong

  • 26 derekm // Jul 12, 2013 at 1:02 PM

    sad really – tons of promise not realised, and Everton were livid when he flew the nest so they must have rated him.
