Gosling: All in it together

Gosling: All in it together

Former Everton and Newcastle United midfielder Dan Gosling is prepared to bide his time for a chance in the Cherries midfield.

AFC Bournemouth agreed the signing of Dan Gosling in May 2014, with the midfielder signing a four year deal after making the move to Dean Court on a free transfer.

Gosling was out of contract at Newcastle United after joining them four years previously from Everton.

He joined Newcastle on a free transfer in July 2010 in controversial circumstances after he had reportedly already agreed to sign a new deal with Everton.

He went on to make just 35 appearances in total for Newcastle including 24 Premier League appearances (5 starts) due to injury.

He spent three months on loan with Championship side Blackpool during the 2013/14 season where he made 14 appearances scoring twice, before returning to Newcastle where he made 8 Premier League appearances between February and the end of that season.

Prior to joining Newcastle, Gosling had spent two and a half years with Everton after he joined the Premier League side from Plymouth in January 2008 for a fee in the region of £2million.

He made 27 appearances for Everton, scoring 6 times and also represented England at Under 17, 18, 19 and 21 level.

He had to wait to make his full debut for AFC Bournemouth as he was not included in the starting eleven which won on the opening day of the season 4-0 at Huddersfield.

Gosling was however named in the League Cup side which beat Exeter City, with Gosling scoring on his full debut.

Gosling told the Daily Echo...

"I am used to competition for places and had it at both Everton and Newcastle. It is no different here because there are top players in the squad.

"They had a great season last season, which shows, so it is going to be difficult to get in the team. But everyone has to be ready to play and, hopefully, I will get the nod soon...'

'...Everyone wants to win whether you are on the bench or starting. We are all in it together and we are going to need everyone this season.

"There are 46 league games, cup runs, injuries and suspensions so we will need everyone pulling in the right direction."
