Former Plymouth Argyle youngster Dan Gosling has moved to Newcastle United on a free transfer following his release from Everton.

The England Under-21 international has signed a four-year deal at St. James’ Park after leaving Everton earlier this month.

Gosling began his career at home-town Club Plymouth Argyle and won a £2m move to Everton in January 2008, where he made his mark with an extra-time winner over Merseyside rivals Liverpool in an FA Cup fourth round replay.

Speaking to the Club’s official website, Gosling said:

“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’ve 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 have shown in me.”

Gosling, who is currently recovering from a knee injury, is set to become Newcastle’s second signing of the summer following the arrival of James Perch from Nottingham Forest.
