Three Italian sides have cast their sights on Newcastle defender Danny Simpson. Roma, Parma and Palermo are all said to be interested in signing the right-back.
Simpson is out of contract with Newcastle this summer. There has been a lot of talk surrounding whether Newcastle will offer him a new contract in January or not.
The club insist that the situation will not be discussed with the player until the New Year.
Nevertheless, if Simpson’s future is not secured soon then the three Serie A clubs will offer him an alternative as they prepare to battle it out for the 25-year-old’s signature.
It has been reported that Roma, Parma and Palermo are all going to offer Simpson a four-year deal worth £50,000 a week.
Do you think that Newcastle should offer Simpson a new contract sooner rather than later with this added attention? Or are you quite happy to let the defender leave?
