Simpson wants talks on Leicester future

28th December 2018, 10:06 by Chris Rivers

Leicester defender Danny Simpson says he is keen to know where he stands as he enters the final six months of his contract.

The 31-year-old was part of the Foxes' title-winning side but has fallen out of favour this season under Claude Puel, the French coach opting for Ricardo Pereira at right-back for the majority of the campaign.

The former Newcastle defender is now waiting to see what Leicester want to do with him amid reports that several clubs have expressed an interest in his services ahead of the January transfer window opening.

Simpson, who had to wait until November for his first outing but has since made five appearances, has said he would prefer to stay at King Power Stadium if given the choice but would understand if the club wanted to move on.

He told reporters: "Obviously my contract is up at the end of the season. It's kind of out of my hands really. I'm pretty sure at some point people in charge will speak to me.

"I've been here a pretty long time so I'm sure they will let me know what my options are sooner rather than later.

"I love it here. I'm happy at the club, the fans, everything. There are lads who have left this place who miss it.

"It's a special dressing room. It would make it difficult to move, of course."
