Newcastle manager Alan Pardew seems worried he may be losing some of his top players again.
Danny Simpson – wants to stay on Tyneside
In a report we published earlier today Alan is concerned that the contact negotiations ongoing with both Fabricio Coloccini, his captain, and Danny Simpson, Newcastle’s right back are dragging on.
No doubt the Newcastle manager is worried that there are mounting contract disputes again with a couple of his top players and the Newcastle Board.
We cannot forget that in the summer, Alan lost both Kevin Nolan and Joey Barton because they couldn’t agree deals to stay on Tyneside.
Only last week Pardew warned Danny Simpson that if he didn’t sign his contract soon, then he may have to sell him, and as early as next month in the January transfer window.
The good news is that Danny has given an interview with Shoot and he says he would like to stay at Newcastle.
This is what Simpson said:
“I am happy here, Newcastle are happy with me and want me to stay.” “Everyone in football now knows that contracts don’t get sorted overnight.”
“I am pretty sure in the next few weeks or early in the New Year something will get sorted.” “The main thing is I am happy here and Newcastle are happy with me and my performances and happy with the way I am progressing.”
“This is the longest I have ever lived away from Manchester and I feel it’s part of my life now,” “Everywhere I go in Newcastle the people are so friendly and so passionate about football.”
“They ask about my family, how I am doing… when people accept you like that it makes things a lot easier.” “I really do love this city and until you live here you don’t realise what the people and place are like.”
The news is that Danny has been offered a new five year deal to secure his future on Tyneside, and this is not the first time the Salford-born player has spoken in lyrical terms about Tyneside, and wanting to stay at Newcastle United.
There’s an easy solution to fix that for Danny – sign along the dotted line – and as soon as possible.
