Ex-Newcastle Defender To Join Championship Club

The Sun are reporting that former Newcastle right-back Danny Simpson is joining Huddersfield until the end of the season. The deal will reportedly be announced later on today.

Danny is a free agent after his contract with Leicester City expired this summer. The 32-year-old played in 138 games for Newcastle from 2009 until he left for QPR as a free agent in 2013.

Simpson is one of a number of ex-Magpies who were without a club when all the transfer windows closed earlier this month. If he does sign with Huddersfield, he will join Emmanuel Riviere as one of the free agents who were able to continue their careers. Riviere joined Achraf Lazaar at Serie B side Cosenza a few weeks ago.

Former Newcastle players Hatem Ben Arfa, Vurnon Anita, Obafemi Martins, and Giuseppe Rossi still remain free agents.
