UPDATE: AFC Bournemouth: Agent confirms Newcastle's Dan Gosling wants to sign for Cherries

Bournemouth Echo: HEART SET: Former Everton midfielder Dan Gosling wants to join Cherries HEART SET: Former Everton midfielder Dan Gosling wants to join Cherries

DAN Gosling will complete a permanent move to Dean Court once Newcastle have given him the green light to sign – the player’s agent tonight confirmed to the Daily Echo.

Midfielder Gosling has been high on Cherries boss Eddie Howe’s wish-list and his representative David Hodgson held preliminary talks with the Dorset club in January.

The 24-year-old, who is available on a free transfer, has been attracting interest from several clubs but apparently has his heart set on joining Cherries after being tempted with a four-year deal.

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Echo, former Liverpool striker Hodgson, who acts for Gosling, said: “We have had discussions. There are still some small hurdles to overcome but, as far as we are concerned, once Newcastle have given Bournemouth the nod, it is a foregone conclusion that the only club Dan will be joining is Bournemouth.

“Right now, nothing in the world is going to change Dan’s mind because Eddie Howe, Jason Tindall and David Webb, the three prominent people I have been in conversation with for the past five months, have been top-drawer.”

Gosling, who progressed through the ranks at Plymouth, has been restricted to just five Premier League starts and 19 appearances from the bench at Newcastle.

He was handed his Football League debut as a 16-year-old by then-Pilgrims boss Ian Holloway in Argyle’s 1-0 win over Hull in the Championship in December 2006.

Devon-born Gosling, capped by England at under-17, 18, 19 and 21 level, was signed by David Moyes in a deal worth around £1.2 million to Plymouth in January 2008.

He signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Everton, featuring in their 2-1 defeat by Chelsea in the FA Cup final in May 2009 and making 22 Premier League appearances for the Toffees.

However, his career suffered a major setback when he spent nine months on the sidelines after rupturing his cruciate ligament towards the end of his stay at Goodison Park.

He was allowed to move to St James’s Park on a free after Everton had failed to give him a written contract offer before his previous deal had expired.

Gosling played 14 games during a loan spell at Blackpool between October and January before he was recalled by Newcastle after Yohan Cabaye had been sold to Paris St-Germain.

His move to Dean Court would be subject to him passing a medical. The Daily Echo has been unable to contact any Cherries officials for comment.

I'm sure many will have reservations because of his career being so injury prone. Eddie's no fool, so if Gosling is good enough for him, I have no problems with his signing.... UTCIAD

As long as we can keep him fit, Gosling would be a massive coup for this club, a Premiership quality player.

Got to admire the echo for keeping quite on this deal ,I wonder how many deals went by the wayside last closed season following speculative reporting by this paper,as I previously stated this was a done deal pending medical according to certain sporting sections in the national papers over the weekend ,let's hope they are wrong about the Lewis rumours !

Yeah, but I seem to recall two central defenders who got the club's support while they cleared their names and they've been great servants. Not all smoke is smoke you know. Would you swap Cook or Elphick now? If Gosling wants a hearing he obviously has something to say, whether he's or player or not, innocent until proven guilty, and if he's out player well I just hope he is. A potentially cracking signing, and a clear indication of the direction this club is headed. You winner of we've publicised this a little early to mage sure Grabbs realises this

Eddie always seems to be careful not only to buy good players but players who have the right attitude and won't upset the spirit of the club. Unlike Swindon who sold little Matty and signed Nile Ranger! Idiots

I take it that you don't believe in forgiveness and unlike the rest of us you have never breached any rules/law. I don't know much about the guy but I would trust Eddie Howe to make the right judgment more than any of us who post on here. My hope is that he has learned from any wrong that he may or may not have done and move on in his career with us if that is what he wants.

Morning Ted, there is no way Grabban would go to Boro when there could be a premiership side waiting in the wings.
I do not want to see him go but as before "in Eddy we trust"

If Grabban goes, you can be 100% sure that Eddy has prepared for it.

Great to see that Gosling is on his way, we are really stepping up this push towards the promised land.
By the way, I gave that troll a serious volley yesterday, funny that hes gone quiet since the story about Lallana !

I've seen him play quite a few times for Everton and he's definitely not Premiership class. Might be okay for the Championship though although not as good as Grabban in my opinion.
He did score a 90th minute winner against Liverpool which I will always be thankful for. Unfortunately it was on ITV and they went to a commercial break just before he shot to show a tic tac advert
