DAN Gosling’s agent has dismissed speculation linking the midfielder with a loan switch to Doncaster Rovers.

Dean Saunders was thought to be keen on offering Gosling an opportunity to get some first team football under his belt as the 21-year-old continues his rehabilitation from a serious knee injury.

But the former Everton youngster’s agent David Hodgson has played down rumours of a possible move to the Keepmoat Stadium.

Hodgson said: “Dan is a Newcastle United player and if they say they want him to go out on loan then he will go out on loan - but no-one has come to Dan or to me with that suggestion yet so it sounds like speculation.

“I have advised Dan since he was at Plymouth as a teenager and my advice to him is that he remains at Newcastle.

“He’s got a very big challenge on his hands at Newcastle, no question about that. And the biggest challenge is to win the manager over.

“It is a very big challenge - I think we both know that.

“Alan Pardew has signed two or three players in Dan’s position so he does have a battle, but if he came to me I would say that the best place to win the manager over is actually at St James’ Park.”
