Newcastle United have added England under-21 star Dan Gosling to their ranks on a free transfer. The former Everton and Plymouth youngster has signed a four-year deal with the North-East club.

Gosling (left) reportedly turned down interest from Sunderland and West Ham to become Newcastle’s second signing of the summer. James Perch joined the Magpies from Nottingham Forest earlier in the transfer window.

In an interview with Newcastle’s official website, Gosling revealed: “It’s a brilliant move for me. Now that the deal is done I just can’t wait to get started.

“I’ve played at St James’ Park before and know all about the amazing atmosphere. Playing there in a black and white shirt is something I have thought about already and it will be a great day when I finally get to walk out in front of 50,000 people.

“The gaffer Chris Hughton and all of the lads have been great with me and made me feel really welcome since I arrived and hopefully I can repay the faith that they’ve shown in me.”

Manager Chris Hughton was equally delighted and said: “We’re delighted to have signed Dan. He’s the right age and the profile that he has is what makes it such an appealing capture for us.

“He’s young but he has Premier League experience and he’s someone who can continue to develop their game.

“We see him as a high-energy player and a player who can play from box-to-box, but he’s also a young player with experience, so he won’t be fazed by what is ahead of him.”
