Magpies midfielder edging toward Premier League new boys.
Crystal Palace are reportedly on the verge of clinching a deal for Newcastle United midfielder Dan Gosling, Sky Sports reports.
A fee is yet to be agreed but according to The Chronicle personal terms have been met as Gosling and Palace boss Ian Holloway are already well acquainted.
Holloway gave the 23-year-old his first team debut back in 2006 when the pair were both at Plymouth Argyle together. He was then picked up by David Moyes at Everton two years later where he showed signs of growing into an impressive player before being allowed to join Newcastle United in 2010.
A stuttering three year spell on Tyneside now looks set to be ended by Holloway who is hoping to add him to the midfield ahead of their return to the Premier League next month.
“He has had his talks with Crystal Palace and everything is agreed,” the player’s agent David Hodgson was quoted by the paper as saying. “We are not privy to how far (the clubs) are apart.
“The most important thing is for Dan to play football again and when your old manager comes in for you, and it is for a Premier League team, what better place to go?
“Ian Holloway gave him his debut at 16 and helped him play for England’s youth teams. Dan is going to join somebody who knows him inside out.
“Playing football is very, very important but finding the right glove to fit into is even more important.
“A permanent deal is the intention and all parties would be happy with that.”
