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.
