EXCLUSIVE: Brighton, Palace make contact over freed Leicester star

Danny Simpson: Leicester defender signs new deal

Danny Simpson remains hopeful of staying in the Premier League this summer, TEAMtalk can reveal.

The 32-year-old is a free agent after leaving Leicester City this summer and has been linked with a number of clubs since then.

Simpson trained with Celtic earlier this summer, but the Premier League title winner still hopes to earn himself an extended stay in the Premier League.

We understand both Brighton and Crystal Palace are among the clubs to have made contact with Simpson’s agent – with the player also open to the idea of moving to Major League Soccer should neither of those transfers materialise.

One of two, Palace look the more likely suitors after the sale of Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United this summer. The Eagles started with Joel Ward at right-back during Sunday’s 1-0 loss to Sheffield United.

Simpson’s exit at the King Power this summer was one of the more recent departures of Leicester’s title-winning side to leave the club; another, Andy King, made a loan move to Rangers last week.
