Didn't realise his contract was running out.
Not his biggest fan but he seems to have filled out and got a bit stronger recently. I'd keep him (don't believe I said that :unsure: ).

He played well today. He's definitely got some size to him now and looks to have acquired some pace. Sign him up for a few more years and see where he gets.

OK so maybe he could leave due to an admin error....but why would he want to :mellow: ? He's certainly not going to be picked up by any of the European qualified teams. Newcastle? Would show supreme lack of ambition on his part.

Having said that I wouldn't lose any sleep if he left, I don't think he'll ever be more than a squad player.

http://www.mirrorfoo...icle517849.html

England under-21 starlet Dan Gosling has walked out of Everton for nothing - after the Premier League ruled he was free to quit over an amazing administrative mistake.

Gosling argued that he could leave at the end of his contract without any fee on his head because the Goodison outfit had failed to put an offer in writing to him.

And the Premier League carried out a full inquiry, with statements from both Gosling's camp and Everton, before deciding the Merseyside club had slipped up - with the player allowed to go on a free transfer.

Everton wanted Gosling to sign a new deal, with chairman Bill Kenwright making verbal offers but failing to put that in writing by the mid-May cut-off point.

Now David Moyes's club will miss out on a fee. They could have made around £4million at a tribunal if Gosling joins a rival Premier League club.

Versatile Gosling was in and out of Moyes's team over the past two seasons, with his personal highlight being the FA Cup replay winner over Liverpool. He had also been stalling on a new deal for football reasons as he wants to play more often.

Gosling is recovering from knee ligament surgery and will not be able to play for around three months. However he is now clear to speak to any club and negotiate his own terms.

Sunderland and Newcastle United are heading the chase, with West Ham also alerted about his availability. Gosling told the Premoer League tribunal that he has not spoken to any other team, but now he will be heading for a round of talks.

The result is a bitter blow for cash-conscious Everton who will be bitter about the outcome. Senior officials all put their case to the inquiry but one basic mistake has cost them a fortune.

Why would they re-sign him?
It's obvious that he wants to go or he wouldn't have taken his case to the premier league!

Bad mistake from EFC but no great loss other than financial I think.

if he has gone sod him, obviously not a loyal player and as has been stated only ever going to be a squad player. If he had stuck around he may have forced himself into the 1st team if he became good enough, though i doubt it. At least at the Barcodes or the Smoggies he should walk into their first team and get the 1st team football he wants. I wont lose sleep over it, big loss financially but other than that....

Cant blame him if he wants first team football coz he'll get little or none with us next season.

Cant believe one of the suits fucked this up though, its not as if we can afford to make basic mistakes that hit us in the pocket!

Nevermind whether Gosling wanted out or not, what an absolute f***ing disgrace from the club's point of view! How much did he cost us? £1 million? And we've lost him for nothing because of an 'administrative error'?! If this is true (I assume the club will have to make an official statement at some point), then heads should role, no business can afford to throw a million quid down the drain because of some cretin who's incapable of doing their job properly. You might have known there'd be some crisis or other this summer, ffs Everton, sort it out and start doing things with a bit of professionalism!

what a ungrateful twat!! Symptomatic of what is wrong with the game at the moment, full of money grabbing gits who couldn't give a stuff who they play for or who gives them a break or chance! He scored the winner against the scum and now thinks he should be a first team regular! C'mon son it takes time unless you are exceptional - which he ain't!! Look at the likes of timmy, jags, nev etc who are passionate about the club, don't look at follow the example of tossers like lescott!!!!!!!

I reckon you broke in, found the contract and shredded it!

In all seriousness, never had the athleticism or ability to threaten first team selection, however for some reason he seemed to have established himself as a Rodwell-esque potential player through in the rumour mills, which is no doubt why the barcodes are getting excited. The only thing they share is friendship and similar age. It's almost like Ben Thornly or Chris Casper to David Beckham.

Truth is we know he was never gonna quite make it, however we maybe could have gotten £3m+ for him from a club like Newcastle who do the their scouting using journalist opinion. Never the less bad admin on our behalf...

Goslings only way of getting a big pay day (via signing on fee). Was never going to set the Premier League alight and could probably see he didn't fit in Moyes' plans so he took the best option for him personally. I doubt if any of us were in that situation you would do what is best for you and not your employer.

Bad mistake from EFC...

Possibly but I don't suppose it enetered their heads when they offered him a new contract that he'd know about, let alone act on, a loophole that would allow him to get out of a lucrative new deal and move on to mid-table obscurity.

Might happen quite often but very few other players would have the lack of ambition and self respect to act on it. Silly boy.

But as you say, no great loss other than financial.
