Gosling claims he has 'totally moved on' from his difficult Newcastle spell

Gosling claims he has 'totally moved on' from his difficult Newcastle spell Former Newcastle midfielder Dan Gosling has revealed that he has ‘totally moved on’ from his tough spell on Tyneside. Gosling made just 36 appearances in all competitions for the Magpies after signing from Everton in 2010, despite being at the club for four years. Several injury issues limited his game time at Newcastle, while he has managed over 100 league appearances for Bournemouth since signing in 2014. Ahead of locking horns with his former employer this weekend, Gosling has been reflecting on his time with the club. Talking to the Daily Echo, Gosling said: “I was there for four years and didn’t really get a chance to play.” “It was a tough four years but I learned a lot, I stayed professional and worked hard. I can’t really blame myself for that, there were other circumstances out of my control.” “I have totally moved on from that. I’m at a very good club here and am very happy with my football.” “I want them to do well because of the staff and friends I have there but, when it comes to Bournemouth versus Newcastle, there are no friends.” “We will say hello after the game but ultimately it’s three points on offer for us.

Thauvin made headlines for all the wrong reasons when trying to force through his dream move to Marseille Lille president Michel Seydoux claimed his star - then 19 - was "untransferable" Florian Thauvin joined Newcastle in 2015. To compound matters, Newcastle were then surprisingly beaten

Thauvin now admits his Newcastle move came “too early” and explains: “At 22, you leave Thauvin has replaced his arrogance with maturity and consistency and has won talisman status at Marseille, a place in The goalkeeper was correct about the decision but the extent of his reaction – kicking the

“Over there [Newcastle], I thought my career was f*****.”

“I came home in the evening and told my girlfriend that this was it – it was over.”

“I wasn’t playing at Newcastle. I ended up at this club lost, no one talked to me. My phone never rang.”

“I had my family and my girlfriend.”

“That’s when I decided to grab the bull by the horns and said ‘I’m going back to Marseille and I’ll make a name for myself’. And that’s what happened.””

Talking about why he decided to leave his native France for England in 2015, the World Cup winning France international continued:

“I made some bad decisions. I can tell you, today, I have a good entourage, and it’s a lot easier for me to feel good.”

“It’s all a lot simpler.”

“I made the wrong choices in the past, no one was there to help me at that time, and that’s why I got it wrong.”

Lascelles claims there was never anything serious in West Ham links

Lascelles claims there was never anything serious in West Ham links Jamaal Lascelles says there was never anything serious in speculation linking him with West Ham and Chelsea over the summer. Speaking after putting pen to paper on a new long-term deal at Newcastle, as reported by Chronicle Live, Lascelles explains that his only focus at the moment is playing for the Magpies. “All that speculation, I don’t think anything was serious. Now I can focus on Newcastle completely with no other distractions. I need to get my head down and start getting this team higher up the league.” West Ham were among the teams to be linked with a move to sign the player during the summer, while Tottenham were also said to be keen. The player has signed a new six-year deal at St James Park, ending any speculation about his future. The new deal will see the defender earn a reported £70,000 a week at the club. With concerns over Newcastle’s form this season, there had been suggestions clubs could come in for him in January. The 24-year-old has been Newcastle’s star man throughout their time in the Premier League and has now seen his form rewarded with a bumper new deal at the club. The news will come as a major boost to the Premier League strugglers, who would have been desperate to keep hold of him for as long as possible.

Ciaran Clark has explained why he left Aston Villa for Newcastle United last summer, labelling the transfer as a “no-brainer”. There were a lot of things to that – the manager staying was a big factor, and then the quality of the signings that came in. “All of that meant it was a no-brainer for me to come

Newcastle winger Florian Thauvin has claimed he will make his loan move to Marseille permanent in the summer. The 24-year-old struggled for opportunities at St James' Park after "It was a loan with an automatic purchase," he said. "After three games I belonged to Marseille so it was almost a transfer.

“Maybe if I’d stayed longer, I could have won a spot in the team, but I wasn’t thinking about that.”

“I told myself I wasn’t playing and I wanted to leave – to go back to Marseille.”

Origi would cost Newcastle double what Liverpool paid.
Newcastle summer target Divock Origi will cost ‘upward of £20million’ in January, if Rafa Benitez opts to shore up his interest. The Magpies coach reportedly enquired about the Belgium international forward in the summer, with the former Wolfsburg loanee having fallen down the pecking order at Anfield. A host of clubs, including a number of Premier League outfits, have reportedly registered interest in the 23-year old ahead of the January transfer window, with Origi having not yet made an appearance for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season. And according to the Express & Star, as cited by the Shields Gazette, Origi will cost upwards of £20million, double that which Liverpool paid Lille for his services in 2014. The report also claims Wolves are interested, however they could be put off by the price tag, while other sources have also linked Everton with a move.
