Londoners Poised To Snatch Hot Property Simpson As Talks Stall?

Reports are suggesting London rivals QPR and Fulham are both interested in signing Newcastle’s Danny Simpson as contract talks hit the rocks.

Simpson played a crucial role in Newcastle’s tremendous campaign last term and was very much the Geordie clubs first choice right back. Simpson performed well in a team which achieved much acclaim last season with some people suggesting Simpson’s form should have meant an international call-up.

Despite everything looking rosy on the outside things have been a much darker shade of grey on the inside. The right back looks likely to end a 3 year spell at St.James’ Park and with his contract due to expire next summer it seems Newcastle are interested in selling him this summer for a reported £4m than letting him walk away on a free next summer.

The 25-year-old apparently favours a move to London with a source stating:

“Danny will see where the land lies when he returns from holiday. If he does leave Newcastle then London would be a real attraction for him”.

However, with the appointment of Chris Hughton – who signed Simpson for Newcastle – at Norwich City could a move to Norfolk be on the cards?

Newcastle seem to be turning their attention to Lille’s Mathieu Debuchy, currently with France at Euro 2012, as a replacement for Simpson.
