D-day looms for Magpie Gosling

Have your say

NEWCASTLE boss Alan Pardew will make a decision on Dan Gosling’s future in the next fortnight.

The midfielder is back at Newcastle after his loan with the Championship came to an end on January 1.

Gosling made 13 starts – and scored two goals – for Blackpool.

And Paul Ince, the Seasiders’ manager, is keen to take him back to Bloomfield Road, either on another loan – or on a permanent deal – in this month’s transfer window.

Asked about Gosling’s situation, United manager Pardew said: “We’ll probably sit on that one for a couple of weeks.

“But one or two younger players could go out.”

Gosling, signed from Everton in 2010, is out of contract at St James’s Park in the summer.

Meanwhile, midfielder Michael Richardson has returned to Newcastle after completing a five-month loan at League Two club Accrington Stanley.
