Gosling was United's star in stripes across the pond
There's a long road behind, but finally after almost 12 months on the sidelines, Dan Gosling is starting to come good for Newcastle United.
In a summer that has contained it's fair share of highs and lows, the midfield battler is starting to show signs that he could well be a key player in the crucial season ahead.
Gosling's box to box capabilities were there for all to see in the US for the Devon lad, and at just 21 it is clear that Newcastle have got a future England player on their hands.
Anybody heading to Leeds this weekend that hasn't seen much of Gosling will see that almost straight away as he begins to get back to full fitness.
Indeed, for the first time in a long time Gosling is close to playing in five games on the trot and that hasn't been lost on any of the coaching staff.
Whether he can push his way into the starting XI for the game with Arsenal, we'll see.
But he's certainly not losing the battle to start against the Gunners.
In a summer of frustration at times for Newcastle, Gosling's re-emergence has at least been one reason to be a little bit more cheerful.
Well, anyone who has watched Newcastle this summer will see Gosling put his heart and soul into tackles, make the runs that others don't see or want to make and also have enough goalscoring instinct to get on the end of things.
He's also got an old head on young shoulders and is capable of organising the team from the engine room when needed.
And if it all a sign of things to come, Gosling's fanbase - which was bolstered by fans in America - will only get bigger on the other side of the Atlantic too.
