Premier League opinion: Two clubs who should sign Danny Simpson
Leicester City right-back and Premier League winner Danny Simpson’s contract expires at the end of this season. With him not signing an extension so far, we could say that his stay at the King Power Stadium is about to end in the summer.
The Manchester United youth product signed for the Foxes in 2014 when they got promoted to the Premier League. Two years later, he was one of the key players in the team’s miraculous title win.
Simpson was one of the certain starters when Claudio Ranieri was in charge. But things haven’t been the same since the departure of the Italian.
The 32-year-old has only featured five times in the league this season and his contract is now running down as well. Hence, other clubs in the division should track his progress and make an offer once the Englishman becomes a free agent.
Here are the two Premier League clubs who should target the right-back:
At the moment, Eddie Howe’s men have Nathaniel Clyne at right-back, who is on loan from Liverpool. The Cherries have Simon Francis as the other option for that position, but he is 34 years old now.
Hence, it makes sense for them to sign a new right-sided fullback in the summer. Danny Simpson has the experience and know-how of the Premier League to come and slot into the team.
With the 32-year-old looking set to become to be a free agent, Bournemouth can get a good deal.
Thus, the Hammers would do well to sign a fullback who has the Premier League experience and can play on a regular basis. Danny Simpson can do that without any doubt.

The two clubs mentioned above have to be proactive about the right-back position in the summer transfer window. If they get a chance to sign the Leicester man for free, the opportunity should be pounced upon.
