Newcastle United midfielder Dan Gosling will not be sent out on loan in an attempt to gain first-team football, according to the player's agent.

Gosling has featured just four times for the Toon since his move from Everton last summer, with his first season at St James' Park ruined by a knee problem.

The 21-year-old has regained full fitness, but has restricted to cameo appearances for Newcastle, and the player's representative David Hodgson is backing Gosling to force his way into the first-team reckoning at the club.

"Dan is a Newcastle United player and if they say they want him to go out on loan then he will go out on loan - but no-one has come to Dan or to me with that suggestion yet so it sounds like speculation," Hodgson said.


"I have advised Dan since he was at Plymouth as a teenager and my advice to him is that he remains at Newcastle.

"He's got a very big challenge on his hands at Newcastle, no question about that. And the biggest challenge is to win the manager over.

"It is a very big challenge; I think we both know that. Alan Pardew has signed two or three players in Dan's position so he does have a battle, but if he came to me I would say that the best place to win the manager over is actually at St James' Park."
