Danny Simpson has been offered a five year deal from Newcastle, in the wake of numerous player contract talks, according to Sky Sports.
As talks stall with Joey Barton and Kevin Nolan over their stays at Newcastle, with lengths of contracts an issue, Simpson appears to have gotten his wish and will remain with the northern club until 2016.
Simpson, who is currently 24-years-old, moved to Newcastle from Manchester United on loan in 2009, with the deal being made permanent in 2010. The right back made 49 appearances for Newcastle last season, and has impressed Alan Pardew who feels the star has a decent amount of years left in him.
While Simpson’s old contract only tied him to the club for the next two years, Pardew is reportedly moving to sign up players he hopes to keep for the long haul, so that should they choose to leave, their resale value will be high.
With Barton’s contract finishing next summer, and with Nolan’s contract expiring in 2013, Pardew reportedly feels it’s important to tie Newcastle’s best players to the club.
