Simpson Told To Sign New Contract By Alan Pardew

The Sunday Sun is reporting today that Newcastle may be getting a little impatient with Danny Simpson.

Danny Simpson – contract issues

It’s certainly not about his form, as he again had a solid game for Newcastle yesterday at the Etihad Stadium,  and continues to improve on Tyneside, and seems to be enjoying things too.

It’s to do with his contract, which runs out a year come next June, and Newcastle have offered him a new improved five year deal, which he has refused to sign.

This is what Alan Pardew said in the Sunday Sun today about the contract issue:

“We’ve made Danny an offer which I think is a good offer, if I’m honest,”   “Like everything it’s very difficult to understand value when you’re a young player. You see other players at other football clubs and you hear rumors, etc etc.”

“I think Danny should commit to the football club because he’s done terrifically well here and the one thing I do know about young players in the Premier League, you can get lost quite quickly.” 

“He doesn’t want to do that, he’s found himself a nice berth in the club. He’s keeping out Davide Santon, who we’ve paid very good money for; he’s a new father, he’s doing particularly well.”

“Sometimes the grass isn’t always greener and I would advise him to get his contract done ASAP.”  “Danny needs to remember he’s playing and getting valuable experience in the best defense in the Premier League,”

Simpson had said during a court appearance recently that he may even have to leave Newcastle, and of course he has every legal right to play out his contract ion Tyneside, and become a free agent in the summer of 2013.

At that time he will be in a good position to broker an excellent deal for himself, because there will be no fee involved in the free transfer.

The Sunday Sun is reporting that his advisers want a bigger pay deal, but Danny’s married with a new baby girl, playing well for Newcastle, and likes the Tyneside area.

Money is only one parameter in all of this,  and we’d be very surprised if Danny sticks  to his guns, and moves on in eighteen months time.

But Newcastle will not allow that to happen, and from their viewpoint, if he hasn’t signed a new deal come next summer, he could be sold, and another full back brought in.

Newcastle are still linked with Erik Pieters of PSG, and if he was brought in Newcastle would have the Dutch International and an improving Davide Santon  for the two full back positions.

19 year-old James Tavernier should also be coming through as should young Irishman Shane Ferguson.

So nothing will happen on this any time soon, but we think that if Danny hasn’t signed a new deal in six months time, push may come to shove, and he could be sold.

What do you think?

    Simmo had a good game yesterday, more so than raylor, in which quality opposition showed his lack of guile and pace. Even if we a new full back in january l would like to see Simmo retained.

    guys, havent posted for a while, but what a great job AP the staff and players have done so far.
    watched the game yest and lets be honest, i thought we did well, we new we were guna have to defend alot,But the positives were we created chances and on another day would have scored, or not hit the post.We missed tiote for sure, and Obertan, what i like about Obertan is he relieves pressure with his pace and provides a good out let. The team we are building is very good and will only get better.
    HBA was very good yesterday looked sharper and gav us that creative edge, some of his link up play with Cabaye was great, i recommend people watch this link if you can as he produces the best skill in the match…even the commentator was lost for words. its in the last seconeds of he first half and makes kompany look like a tool.,,12606_7318881,00.html

    So what direction is the wind blowing this week then? Just weeks ago people were pleading for Simmo to be dropped and replaced by Raylor. Now Simmo after 2 impressive performances is the one who must be retained and Raylor … well we know what everyone is saying about the poor lad this morning. It’s just a good job Pardew is manager to keep a balanced view of proceedings rather then some of the knee jerk people who offer opinions on here.

    Yes, I noticed that sleight of foot, just before half time.

    Kompany was left for dead, and he’s no mug.

    alex84 I thought we didn’t miss Obertan much yesterday which says a lot for young Sammy. Of course he fizzled out before the end but Obertan often does, too. Well doen all round. Toufgh decisions now for Pards on both Raylor/Santon and Guthrie/Tiote, although I expect Raylor and Tiote will appear next time out.

    As far as I’m concerned Simpson can leave any time-he’s awful. He’s had a couple of decent games and seems he thinks he’s worth more money!! cheeky arrongant greedy sod! he’s crap-is always backing away-almost invites oppo into the box!, can’t pass the ball and is simply atrotious. I honestly don’t know what the hell pardew sees in him-likewise bloody perch! thanks Hughton-I don’t think. not being funny but you can tell Hughton doesn’t know a good player if he saw one.

    If both simpson and perch left I’d be quite happy.
