Newcastle defender Danny Simpson set to join QPR
The full-back had been linked with West Ham and Fulham
Danny Simpson is set to sign for Queens Park Rangers today.
The Newcastle full back had failed to negotiate a new deal to stay at St James' Park and had been linked with West Ham, Torino and Fulham.
However Simpson has agreed terms with Harry Redknapp as the former Spurs manager attempts to plot an immediate return to the Premier League for Rangers.
The 26-year-old Simpson first moved on loan to St James' Park in the summer of 2009, and had secured a permanent deal at the club by the time the January transfer window opened. He signed a three-and-a-half year deal and moved from Manchester United for a fee of £750,000
He went on to play 84 times for Newcastle in the Premier League and despite repeated attempts to broker a new deal, nothing was done and his contract was allowed to run down following the signing of the French right back Mathieu Debuchy at the start of the year.
