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.
