Gosling made a controversial move to Newcastle from Everton carrying a knee injury, which is expected to keep him out until January.
He told the Evening Chronicle: "I can't wait to be back playing - it's been a while now. Hopefully, I'll be back sooner than expected. But I'm not going to try and rush back."
United boss Chris Hughton's take on the injury is plain and simple.
He said: "He's had a bad injury and we won't take any chances on him with it.
"We'll give him all the time he needs to get back and play for this football club."
