Gosling 'happy' to stay at Newcastle

Published Add your comment

Newcastle United midfielder Dan Gosling insists he is not unsettled at St James' Park. 

Gosling, 23, signed a four-year-deal with the Toon after being given a free transfer by Everton in 2010.

The former Toffees midfielder has found first-team football extremely hard to come by in recent seasons - due to a combination of torrid injury trouble and the magnificent form of coveted midfield duo Yohan Cabaye and Cheick Tiote. 

He was reportedly on the verge of a transfer to Premier League newcomers Crystal Palace in July, but was left feeling thoroughly frustrated as the Eagles pulled out of negotiations after the player had undergone a medical. 

"It was difficult but it affects people differently," Gosling told The Chronicle. 

"I just get on with my job and I'm employed by Newcastle United. It was no bother to come back. I'll just get my head down and get on with my work." 

Despite the disappointment of seeing his chances of a move to south London evaporate, Gosling, who has featured for Newcastle and Alan Pardew during pre-season, says he is content to stay in the North East if required. 

"I was always happy to be here and always happy to stay," he claimed. 

"I need to play football. That's what I'm paid to do and I haven't been doing that. Whether it is to move on or whatever, who knows?

"I just want to play football whether it is here or somewhere else."
