One piece of business on this last day of the transfer market could be Danny Simpson leaving the club after three and half years on Tyneside.
Danny Simpson - could leave Newcastle today
It seems that Danny would like to move to London so if Fulham put in a bid of around £1M for the former Manchester United player then the Magpies will accept it – although it seems the club are also now willing for him to stay until the summer when he becomes a free agent and he can leave for nothing. Wigan Athletic are also said to be interested in the player and they are in their annual battle against relegation – so that would hardly be a good move for Simpson.
Simpson will not get too many games if Mathieu Debuchy stays fit and even if Debuchy is not available, then Davide Santon could move over to right back and new boy 20 year-old Massadio Haidara could come in at left back – since he’s the future of Newcastle. Danny has played 131 times for Newcastle with two goals and he helped us come straight back up after we were relegated.
Xisco will also leave Newcastle today and if he does it will be for the last time as his £50K/week five year contract runs out in the summer – and he just wasn’t good enough for the side – and Xisco could move on loan to Spanish second division side Cordoba with a possible permanent move in the summer. Xisco played only 11 times for the Newcastle first team in all competitions.
And youngsters Shane Ferguson and Sammy Ameobi will be sent out on loan until the end of the season – as soon as something is set up for the two young promising players on Tyneside.
But we don’t expect it to be a busy last day of the transfer window for Newcastle – but we’ve been wrong before.
