There was news yesterday that originated in the Daily Mirror that Danny Simpson could leave Newcastle in January or next summer.
Danny Simpson – don’t believe everything you hear
The former Manchester United right back put this out on his Twitter account today:
“Don’t believe everything u read, things get taken out of context! Very happy at Newcastle n I’m staying,”
And this is not the first time Danny has denied he is leaving the club, after reports emerged that he was leaving Newcastle.
And we have no idea why this news keeps coming up, although we do know the club were trying to get him to sign a five year deal at Newcastle, but nothing has been agreed yet.
It feels like deja vu all over again, and perhaps we could get some clarification from Alan Pardew about why these reports keep surfacing about Danny. What’s the situation with Danny would be the question to ask.
Danny’s contract runs out a year next June, and Newcastle will probably want to sell the player if he doesn’t sign a new deal soon, because they’d get nothing for him if he becames a free agent in 18 months time.
The quotes from Simpson yesterday came during a court hearing for a speeding offense, and the news was first put out by the Daily Mirror, and this is what Danny was supposed to say at the hearing:
“There is a chance in the future that I will be moving, whether in the transfer window or in the summer,” “I have 18 months left on my contract and I don’t think it will go past that.”
Simpson has played in all of Newcastle’s 10 games so far this season, and he has made 82 total appearances for Newcastle United with two goals.
