From what we can tell from this morning’s news, it definitely seems that Danny Simpson will test the waters in January and see if any good teams come in for him, and offer him more than Newcastle United have already offered him with their previous contract offer.
Danny Simpson – to test the waters in January – could leave Magpies
There are no plans to renew contract talks with right-back Danny Simpson until both parties see what happens in January, when clubs can some in and talk to the right back – since his contract runs out next June.
And if some club comes in for him and wants to take Danny in January for a small fee, then Newcastle would potentially move again for Mathieu Debuchy.
A Newcastle source has said this in today’s Evening Chronicle:
“Danny will have to wait and see what happens in the window.” “The club has most players on long-term contracts and Danny is the exception to that.”
And Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is a big fan of Danny’s and will continue to play him in Newcastle’s first team:
“He is under-rated by our fan base, but his defensive work is important.” “Defensively, he can deal with a wide player.”
Pardew will also have James Perch, James Tavernier and Vurnon Anita at right back, and Vurnon has looked good when he’s played in that position for Newcastle this season.
But this scenario looks like Danny is looking to leave Newcastle in January or in the summer to the highest bidder, as far as wages go.
If that’s the case, and it certainly looks like it – so be it – he should leave Newcastle.
