Newcastle defender Danny Simpson has been told to sign his new five year contract by Newcastle manager Alan Pardew, or risk being sold as early as in the January transfer window.
Danny Simpson challenges Balotelli last Saturday
The Salford-born 24 year-old defender will return to his first club this afternoon, when he should be lining up at right back for Newcastle at Old trafford, and it seems he still has fond memories of the Manchester club.
Simpson has been reminiscing about his time at Old Trafford:
“I looked up a picture the other day – I put it on Twitter – of my team when I was 12 years old. And it’s funny because there’s Fraizer Campbell, Ashley Grimes and Danny Guthrie in it as well. Good memories.
“Sir Alex is like a dad, not just to players. He’s a legend. He just said to me, ‘It’s time to move on’ and he thought if I progressed like he thought then I’ll do all right.”
“He always asks me how I am and how my family are. That’s the type of man he is.” “I saw him a few weeks ago. It’s always good to see him. He remembers everyone.”
“It would be nice this week if we have a chat after the match and we’ve taken some points off them.”
And with a lot more votes in there’s still little sympathy for Danny Simpson on his contract negotiations from Newcastle supporters.
And we really do think that Danny could be out of the Tyneside club by February 1st, if he refuses to sign his new contract, and Newcastle could bring in another full-back at that tim.
And it wouldn’t surprise us too much if it ended up being top Dutch International Erik Pieters.
