Danny Simpson has conceded that he would be interested in a move to Newcastle United, if the opportunity was to present itself.
The Manchester United full back is currently on loan at St James Park and has impressed so far this season on Tyneside and has relished playing regular first team football, something he has been unable to attain at Old Trafford given the Champions strength in depth at full back.
Simpson believes that perhaps it may be in his best interests to leave the club he has been with since the age of nine in order to get playing time and would certainly welcome the opportunity to remain at Newcastle United:
Simpson said: “If there was an opportunity for me to stay at Newcastle then of course I would listen, because I’m not sure I would get these opportunities at United.
“I look at someone like Nicky Butt who is a big figure here at Newcastle – he has won medals, played at the highest level and not looked back since he left Manchester United.
“He’s definitely someone I would talk with to get his advice because he’s made a success of his move. I’ve been at United since I was nine and it would be hard to leave, but I’m 22 now and want to play regular football and kick-start my career.” (Mirror)
