Danny Simpson has cooled down rumours suggesting he could be the next high-profile player to leave Newcastle. Following the take over at QPR, a high number of players are now being linked with a move to Loftus Road, whilst reports have said that Neil Warnock is keen on the Magpies defender.
Speculation suggests that contract talks with Newcastle and the 24-year-old have come in to question, with claims that discussions regarding an extension have broken down, suggesting Simpson is prepared to look elsewhere.
The ex-Manchester United defender insists that the rumours are not true, and his intention is to stay at St James’ Park.
Simpson said: “I’m a Newcastle player with a contract for another two years.”
”I enjoyed last season and I’m settled here with my family and happy playing games for a massive club.”
Alan Pardew’s side have enjoyed impressive performances in their two opening Premier League fixtures, taking four points out of a possible 6, and Simpson insists the camp remain confident.
He added: “A big part of us is our team spirit. I know we have lost some players, but life goes on.
“The new lads that have come in have taken on the team spirit, and the performances showed how together and strong we are.
“We have got a lot of confidence now and we are all looking forward to the cup game (against Scunthorpe) and Fulham (on Sunday).”
