Gearbox Slap

I have a 2006 2.2 Titanium diesel & have noticed when driving in narrow built up streets when you can hear your transmission I have noticed a slap like a shaft worn when accelerating or de - accelerating. Is this a common problem & does it need repairing & what would be the cost.

(x-type Jag and mk3 Mondeo are basically the same car with a lot of parts in common)

its in the middle behind the engine and looks like this -
