Gosling rebuffs Palace and returns to Newcastle
Dan Gosling's move to Crystal Palace has collapsed after a lack of communication from the Eagles, the player's representative David Hodgson has told the Croydon Advertiser. The midfielder looked set to finalise a move to Selhurst Park after completing a medical in south London on Monday, but after failing to hear back from Palace he has since travelled back to the north east in major disappointment.
"The move has broken down unfortunately," said Hodgson told the Advertiser.
"We arrived at Palace and did all the things we had to do, and unfortunately it came around to 2.30pm yesterday (Tuesday) and we hadn't had any communication from Palace.
"Having sat there until 9pm last night, we took it upon ourselves to say it wasn't right and this wasn't working.
"A call from anybody at the football club would have been helpful. We didn't get that call.
"Ian Holloway has been absolutely fantastic and Dan wanted the chance to link up with Ian more than anything else."
