Rovers on the scout in the transfer market
Rovers seem to have finally been doing some homework in the transfer market after a few weeks of needless inactivity.
After sealing the capture of Murphy and putting in a bid for Leon Best the next in line for a move is also based in the North East.
Dan Gosling, formerly of Everton and currently of the Barcodes is wanted on loan to further bolster the midfield ranks which were boosted by the Murphy signing.
The move being lined up for the youngster is a season long loan with Gosling unlikely to be hitting the first team scene at St James Park any time soon with such a strong midfield in place up there.
As a result (similar to Best) he is looking for first team opportunities elsewhere which should lead to salesman Steve giving him a highly positive pitch at some point soon.
Watch this space...
Bid in for Leon Best, a midfield signing already in the bag and Gosling being sought as well, it's almost as if we are preparing for a player exodus.
