This Is One Newcastle Player Who Has Impressed This Year

In the last few months of his four year stint on Tyneside, Dan Gosling is finally getting a chance in the Newcastle first team in midfield, and he has looked a good player in the last three games.

Dan Gosling – impressive in last three games

And Dan will be alerting a number of clubs with his good form, because he becomes a free agent in the summer, and his form in the Newcastle side of late is such that one or two Premier League clubs could now make a move for him this summer.

This is what Dan has said today:

“Of course you have a think here and there about your future.”  “The main focus though is to keep playing and help the lads claw over the line and get a top 10 finish.”

“There has been a lot of talk that our season is fading away and we’ve given up, but I think everyone knows that isn’t the case. We showed heart and desire against Swansea.”

“Our work-rate was good and we pressed all game.”  “Swansea never got their passing game going.” “We stifled them, and were very unlucky to lose – I don’t think we deserved that at all.”

“Through the season, you always get criticism.” “You get great feedback as well when things are going well.”  “It’s best to try not to take any of it too personally.”

“We just stick together, and have to try and come out and win games on the weekend.”

Good words there from Dan Gosling, and he will be leaving Newcastle this summer and has started the last three games for the side.

Dan has now played 34 times with one goal for Newcastle, and earlier this season he played 14 times for Blackpool with two goals.

We suppose there’s a possibility that Dan could still be at Newcastle in September, and one scenario where that could happen is if David Moyes is brought in as manager, and if he then convinces Dan he will get some games next season.

Gosling got games under Moyes at Everton when he was a youngster.

But that scenario is probably unlikely to happen.

Comments welcome.
