Dan Gosling is one of the players who will leave Newcastle this summer, when his four year contract runs out at Newcastle, and he just never made the grade at Newcastle, for whatever reason.
Dan Gosling – just turned 24 earlier this month
Dan was signed as a free agent from Everton in the summer of 2010, after Everton had failed to offer him a new deal in writing by the due date, and he became a free agent.
While Dan has not made the grade on Tyneside, Alan Pardew has repeatedly said what a good professional Dan is and he’s never grumbled at Newcastle, but just got on with things.
This is what the 24 year-old midfielder told the Shields Gazette today:
“It was a very disappointing night against Tottenham.” “As good as they were, we were far from ourselves.” “I think the fixtures caught up on us and it was a disappointing night.”
“Everyone felt really hurt and we had a tough week after that.” “I think the work paid off because we went right to the last minute and thankfully Loic got the goal.”
“It was the longest week all season I think, and that’s no joke either.” “It was a lot of work and it feels worth it now.”
Hard work never did anybody any harm, and given the wages these players get these days, somehow we have little sympathy for them putting in long hours on the training field, especially after the disgraceful performance against Tottenham.
Gosling was brought on against Aston Villa very late in the game, for his second Premier League appearance of the season and his fourth overall appearance this term.
We expect Dan to sign for a Championship club when he becomes a free agent in the summer.
