INCOMING Cherries recruit Dan Gosling admitted his four-year spell at Newcastle United had been “tough mentally” after the midfielder found his chances limited at St James’s Park.

Cherries are set to complete a move for Gosling subject to a medical, with the 24-year-old due to pen a deal that will tie him to Dean Court until 2018.

Arriving at the Magpies in summer 2010 with a ruptured cruciate knee ligament sustained while at Everton, Gosling went on to make just 36 appearances for the Toon.

And the former Plymouth man admits he is relishing the thought of starting a new chapter in his career.

“The last few years have been tough mentally,” Gosling told afcb.co.uk.

“People suggest I was injured a lot, but I was only injured for four months two seasons before last.

“Other than that, I have been fit and have trained every day. I just wasn’t being selected, which was tough.

“But this year I found myself in the team, playing well and my performance level was going up with every game. It was just too little, too late for me at Newcastle.

“I was looking for the chance to play regular football and a club that aspires to be bigger and better. I think that’s what I’ve got.”

Yes that rookie goalkeeper. ALLSOP..
His inexsperiance in the end cost us a play off place,
Eddie Howe is and always will be the greatest manager that AFCB will ever have.
I dont think Allsop will play in the first team,next season .
He drove us all mad in the Fletch stand,With his slow play /antics etc,

You must be bored typing the same thing over & over again, we all certainly are bored of reading it constantly, every story on here you manage to turn it round to your favourite subject, give it a rest, the last thing we all need over the summer is you droaning on about the same old thing

a bit harsh, in the early matches there was a number of mistakes all around the pitch, collectively these would have been the main reason we failed to reach the playoffs, Allsopp is young he will learn a lot from Camp we will see the best from him yet, the goalkeeper is the only player on the pitch who punished for every mistake
