Danny Simpson: Pooh-poohing contract gossip on Twitta.
Tweeting on his Twitter page, Newcastle United full back, Danny Simpson, has rubbished the recent media speculation on his negotiations for a new contract.

It has been reported that Simpson has turned down the club’s latest contract offer, which has been variously reported as £20,000 per week with no bonuses and also £25,000 per week. The sources for these stories are still unclear, however in response to the speculation, Simpson tweeted: (more…)

Alan Pardew in the dugout.
Pardew: More sponsorship, or the players will go!
In a move which may or may not be coincidental with the kerfuffle over the club’s recent stadium rename, Alan Pardew has told the Sunday Mirror that though Mike Ashley and Derek Llambias have put the club in a much stronger position finacially, it still needs to bring more sponsorship in.

He also added that if the club failed to bring in more sponsorship, we may lose our best players. The grey gaffer started with praise for Mike Ashley and Derek Llambias’ financial stewardship the club, though it is still in more debt than it was when Ashley gained control of the club in the summer of 2007.

Simpson set to run down contract?

Contract negotiations between Newcastle and Danny Simpson may have broken down.
In the exit seat?
Right-back Danny Simpson will refuse to sign a new contract at Newcastle United according to rumours in the Sunday Sun.

The Sunday Sun (bless its heart) is reporting that contract negotiations have broken down between Danny Simpson and the club. The Sun alleges that the club have offered Simpson a 5-year contract and aren’t prepared to budge from their offer, but the offer is too low to interest Simpson and he will therefore not be signing it.

The Sun does not quote any sources of their information, it merely ‘understands’ that the situation is thus and they further suggest that Simpson will just run down his contract and leave at the end of it unless he is sold in the interim.

It’s all news to Pardew, though, and he insists it’s completely untrue. Pardew said:

He’s got a future here but he’s got a fight on his hands because Ryan Taylor has done terrific at left-back and now we’ve got Santon who can play both positions. So he needs to play well now.

I don’t know where the stuff about Danny Simpson came from. It’s totally untrue as far as I’m concerned, anyway.

Hmm, well forgive me if I doubt you Alan. (more…)
