Two of Newcastle United's loan stars have returned to Tyneside following the end of their temporary spells.

Dan Gosling was back at the Magpies' Benton base on Friday after his agreement with Blackpool came to an end.

The midfielder joined the Championship outfit in October and scored twice in 13 starts and one substitute appearance.

Meanwhile Michael Richardson has returned from League Two Accrington Stanley after five months.

His initial one-month period was extended in August and in all competitions he made 13 starts and five substitute appearances.
