One to watch: Dan Gosling

GoslingYoung Plymouth Argyle right-back Dan Gosling has made the papers this morning amid rumours that Jose Mourinho is staring longingly towards Home Park and wishing he could sneak the transfer window back open.

Gosling signed his first professional contract earlier this month when he turned 17, which – as the mathematicians among you will have worked out – means he is a professional footballer born in the 1990s. Scary!

His boss at Plymouth, Ian Holloway, is trying to keep his young charge’s feet on the ground. In a relatively sober quote, he said: "It’s the first rung on the ladder that we hope he will climb all the way to the top. If he keeps working hard, he has got a real chance of being a Premiership player. I am really looking forward to working with him and helping him get there – but he’s done nothing yet."

Gosling fancies himself as a midfielder in the style of Roy Keane, although I don’t suppose he would mind the opportunity to play at right-back for the Premier League champions! [Rob Parker]

    dan gosling is shite, from russel cooper

  2. mike hocking says:

    Dan Gosling is potentially a lad who could play at the highest level .Russel Cooper (who I suspect has never seen him play and has never played even pub football ) should be ashamed of his idiotic comments

  3. ian porter says:

    He will become plymouth record sell fee. He has got a lot of class about him, but Ian Holloway has to keep his feet on the ground. If this happens he will become a top premiership player no problem. Although another plymouth player to watch is Luke Summerfield.. Keep your eyes open for both.

  4. Michael King says:

    Gosling will play in the Premiership, whether it be sooner or later. Top-level clubs must be taking notice and considering a bid for him this or next summer.
