Deja Vu – Danny Simpson Denies He’s Leaving Newcastle


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.

    I know his style of play winds people up, but we would be stupid to get rid of him. A good squad player if anything, and contrary to popular belief, he isn’t guilty of half the mistakes and errors he cops blame for.

    Nah Lads. Liverflu are preparing an 18mill Bid for Simmo.
    Ashley is hoping for more because the lad is still young and is British.

    I agree with G (im a poet and i didnt know it) He is part of the strongest diffence in the English Leagues, he may be the weekest link, but he is still a link and the chain is yet to break. If we get in Pieters/Sissokho or even keep Raylor LB with Santoon LB, then wouldn’t Simpson be a quality/experienced squad player. I cant undertand if we keep the likes of Perch on our books but get rid of Simmo!

    When people start rating Raylor, who’s and RW, playing regularly at LB, is rated higher than a natural RB like Simmo, then peoples warning lights should flash.
    Also, Santon came on for Simmo, not Raylor against Spurs.
    Simmo blames his fluctuation recent form on his baby, but Raylor had a baby in August, and he’s not complaining.
    During the hearing Simmo said that there was issues with the babys bowels, and it had put a strain on him and his girlfriends relationship.
    I sympathize with that, and AP said he took Simmo off cause he had a tough week, what i said us probably the reason.

    Still, an RW being favored higher at an LB position than an RB at an RB position….
    It’s very contradicting what some of u are saying tbh.

    Dannyo, Raylors baby won’t have health issues as Simmo”s, so that’s a bit to compare

    Leazes – agreed, if he wants to go then he HAS to go, but he said himself he doesnt want to. So imo a decent squad player!

    think ppl r getting a bit carried away wi raylor… hes no more than a squad player hes been put in at lb so ppl give him benifit of doubt when he messes up hes too slow his positional sense is all over even when on right.. hes a valuable squad player but for ppl to b raving about him n slating simmo they need a reality check.. simmo didnt put a foot wrong gainst spurs n only reason he will of been taken off b4 raylor is the free kick option.. redknapp realised raylor was weak link hence starting bale on right.. didnt however count on guttis work rate..

    Thats what i mean nimmo > Santon is obviously going to start playing, we are looking for another full back (Pieters/Sissokho) so Raylor and Simmo will provide good cover! Good Man!

    There’s no point of selling him, unless he refuses to fight for his place.

    Player will always said that they will be staying. But its still up to clubs to decide.

    Some might just try to let some let some news throu media on their current contract and time for renewal.
