Newcastle United have completed a suprise deal for Everton runaway Dan Gosling.

The England under-21 starlet also had talks with West Ham, Bolton Wanderers and Sunderland before opting for Toon in a switch worth £5.5million over four years.
Gosling was allowed to leave Everton for nothing because of an administrative  blunder by the Mersey men, who verbally offered him a new deal but crucially had nothing in writing before a premier league deadline.
He would have earned around £15,000 a week at Everton but is picking closer to £25,000 a week at Newcastle because there was no transfer fee involved.

The club managed by Chris Hughton were the one of the interested sides to promise £4m-rated Gosling that they would sign him even if they had to pay a transfer feeonce an Everton appeal is heard.

Newcastle rushed the deal through even though the 20 year old midfielder is injured and will miss the first three months of the season following knee surgery.
