QPR signed Danny Simpson from Newcastle

QPR signed Danny Simpson from Newcastle

Queens Park Rangers have confirmed signing defender Danny Simpson from Newcastle on a free transfer.

The 26-year-old Englishman will join the Rangers as soon as his contract with the Magpies expires at the end of June, after the Premier League club has decided not to renew his deal.

Simpson, who is Harry Redknapp’s first signing of the summer transfer window, revealed he is happy to have joined the QPR ranks. He said: “I want to play week in week out. That was the main thing for me. Harry wants me playing and he wants me involved. He’s a top manager, and as soon as I spoke to him I knew this was the right move for me. I’ve always admired him. He is a great man in the game and I have a lot of respect for him.

“In training and games, I will give 110%. I know Harry has spoken to other coaches about me and I am sure one thing they would have said is that I am a good pro and that’s what he wants in his squad. From what I’ve heard from Harry and the staff I have spoken to, along with some of the players here who I know, they are determined to put things behind them and get back into the Premier League where the club belongs,” he added.
