Danny Simpson Refuses To Sign Contract – Will Be Moved Out

News today that Danny Simpson has turned down the contract offer from Newcastle United.

Danny Simpson – refuses latest Newcastle contract offer

Danny has two years left on his current contract he signed in January, 2010, and that will put Newcastle scouting force in motion to being in another full-back to the club.

But apparently  Danny has already been informed he will not be allowed to leave in January, but in all likelihood  will now be sold in the summer.

The news is that both Aston Villa and QPR are keen on the former Manchester United player, who was signed almost two years ago  for around £500K, and Newcastle should make a decent profit on the player.

Lee Ryder in the Evening Chronicle is reporting that it seems a similar situation that Joey Barton was in earlier this year.

So if that’s the way Danny feels then fine, he can go, and Newcastle will bring in somebody new.

But have you ever noticed that when a player leaves Newcastle’ it’s extremely rare that they do better when they are away from Tyneside?

And it seems to us, even more reason why Newcastle should bring in left-back Taye Taiwo on loan from Milan next month.

We had an article out earlier today suggesting that Newcastle could bring the 26 year-old Nigerian International in on loan, since he seems to have been frozen out at Milan, whom he joined as a free agent in the summer from Marseilles.

Seems like a decent option to us, and Danny Simpson will now be moved out in the summer, and he can get bigger money elsewhere.

That’s fine with us.

Comments welcome.

    This sounds like his agent has told him he can make much more with a move. The agent will of course make most of the money from any move himself. I suspect Danny will sign a contract as soon as he sees the offers that come in. By that time of course he may already be replaced. My sens is we offer the market rate but no more. Which makes sense or you get stuck with low performers.

    Depends on what you mean by better Ed.
    If you mean do they become better players ?
    Join a better team ?
    Or get both more money and a better contract ?
    I think the third option is what most are interested in and one that has been the reason for moves away from NUFC.
    They are aware of how cheap the owner is and opted out.
    In which case they have in fact all done better.

    My fear with these contracts and whom we sign and move is how this impacts our Captain and Most Valuable Player COLO contract decision.
    If we can take anything from this year so far is if you want to compete for Europe you have to have quality depth with EPL expirience, which we all knew we lacked coming into the season. All the hard work and the results that we got early in the season are coming under threat because of this.
    We have Tiote under contract for 5.5 more years, why move him? Especially when you consider Guthrie’s contract runs out in the summer and he hasn’t resigned yet.
    If we are building a team to consistently challenge for Europe at this point we can’t do a one in and one out policy because that we still put us in the position we are currently in, NO DEPTH.

    So playing the role of General Manager of the team it is upmost important to resign Guthrie ASAP, sign two defenders and a striker in January with the Carroll cash, keep Tiote. I think this will be enough to keep COLO to sign a 4-5 yr deal and the rest of the team happy. Then make a decision on Simpson come summer.

    Simpson….another name that won’t be getting added to \Bills-son’s extensive list of 4 (FOUR) players that have successfully negotiated a contract renewal. On the otherhand, we are good at manufacturing a lot of Judas’s!

    Typical dumb ass fan reaction.
    The guy has done a good job for us, playing for peanuts, in comparison to the rest of the starting eleven.
    Now they think he should continue, offering a low ball contract.
    Problem is every player has an agent looking out for him and he will probably move on like others before him, for a better contract elsewhere and it will be our loss.
    Thats what happens when you get people who know nowt about a players worth making decissions at clubs.
    What is it that makes you feel that way, cause he has the audacity to ask for a decent contract.
    It’s a short career, ten years at best, footballers like movie stars and others generate big bucks, they are entitled to get their piece of the action
    This is not the fifties when they were told how much they would get or pack your bags we just sold you.
    Grow up !

    solano – Simpson has been offered whart Ashley thinks he’s worth, as Barton and Nolan were.

    Ashley was right over the first two and he is right over Simpson.


    Good job you aren’t doling out the wages eh?

    Bills-son you’re lying to yourself mate thinking any forethought on Ashley’s part went into letting Barton or Nolan go. He gambled with the team’s fortunes because he’s cheap and greedy.

    The team manager Alan Pardew himself did not know how things would pan out with Barton gone – thats why he was so desperate to keep him. Just because a gamble pays off doesnt make it any less a gamble or justify the risk involved mate ….especially when the club at stake is passionately supported by so many around the world

    Well said Chuck. In a year’s time we’ll have a Bramble-like creature playing right back and we’ll be reminiscing on the days when we had a good right back and got rid of him because he had the temerity to ask for a decent contract

    Bills….in truth Simpson is an average Premier player, just as we are an average Premiership team.
    No one is going to argue that ALL players live in an overpaid bubble but his current 10-12k a week is way below what is considered a commensurate wage for an equivalent player of his standard.
    We already need strengthening in other positions, so why strain our scouting resources further because we are unwilling to give a bloke who has done a decent job a decent contract? I won’t be crying if he leaves, but you know as well as I do that we will be maximising the profit margin whilst having no intention of adding real depth to the squad. Instead, it will be the one in, one out policy and making another gamble on finding a cheap replacement. Hardly a formula for real improvement….

    Your list of 4 players who managed to renew, Bills, doesn’t look like increasing soon but our list of Judas’s seems to have infinite possibilities!

    Simpson did really well for us against Manure the other week!

    But, has been woeful in a lot of other games when played alongside Perch!

    Typical that as soon as a player decides he is better than he actually is he automatically get the : “Judas “! Nametag from some of you on here!

    If he wants to leave then let him! But don,t let him go for nowt like Joey!
    There are much better players out there who would jump at the chance to play at SJP, Get Rid!

    What on earth are you lot all wittering on about. If Simmo leaves, we have a ready made replacement. Someone with bags of experience at playing Right Back. Someone who ‘just hasn’t really had the chance’. Someone who can take Simmo’s place in the team, and on the same wages, hence saving money for Big Fat Mike.
    His name: James Perch. (I’ll get me coat)
