There are reports in today’s Sunday papers that Danny Simpson would like to move to London to play his football, so he can be closer to his new girlfriend – X Factor judge Tulisa.
Danny Simpson - reports he wants to move to a London club
If we are honest we have no idea what Danny wants to do, because whenever he’s interviewed by the Newcastle press he always says he wants to stay on Tyneside, but his actions don’t suggest that, and he’s refused to sign a new contract at Newcastle for 18 months now.
And we could see Danny boy leave in January, if a club comes in with an offer of around £2M, which Newcastle would probably take rather than losing him for nothing in the summer.
Danny’s private life seems to be in a bit of a mess at the moment, with his former girlfriend Stephanie Ward, 25, who had a baby girl Skye by Danny 18 months ago, has said she is again pregnant with his baby.
It seems that three London clubs – Fulham, QPR and Reading – may be interested in the former Manchester United defender, so if one of those three come in with a £2M bid in January we could see Simpson leave for London.
Danny has so far played 126 times for Newcastle with two goals, and to be fair to the lad, he’s never let his off field activities affect his form on the pitch for the Magpies.
And Martin Jol will get a chance of seeing how good Danny is tomorrow night at Craven Cottage when we go down to play Fulham, and hopefully can come away with all 3 points.
