UPDATE: News finally broke this week that Newcastle won the battle for Dan Gosling’s signature as the promising midfielder signed for Newcastle United and will wear the number 15 shirt.
This can’t be confirmed as of yet – there are also rumours eminating that Gosling has signed for West Ham on a 17k p/week deal. But, there’s no smoke withoot fire…
The Daily Mirror are reporting that Newcastle United have completed the signing of former Everton midfielder Dan Gosling. Gosling, who left Everton after failing to sign a contract, was up for grabs for nothing and it appears that Newcastle may have gazumped Bolton, who showed concrete interest in the player (there are rumours that the Mackems and West Ham were also interested).
Gosling is rumoured to have signed on a 4 year deal worth £25k a week. However, all is not rosy with the signing. Gosling is currently out injured and won’t be able to play for another 3 months. A short-term loan signing for cover would be ideal – Jack Wilshire anyone?
