Danny Simpson has admitted he would be interested in staying at Sunderland.
Sunderland loanee Danny Simpson has admitted he would be interested in staying at the club permanently.
The 20-year-old is currently on loan at Sunderland from Manchester United until the end of the season.
Simpson is well down the pecking order at Old Trafford and has yet to make an appearance in the first-team.
The full-back is enjoying life at Sunderland and insists he would be interested in making the switch on a full-time basis.
"Nothing was said about a permanent move when I joined on loan - the deal was just until the end of the season," Simpson told the Sunday Sun.
"But if the chance of a permanent move to Sunderland came up, I'd jump at it.
"At Sunderland, I've had the chance to play in the first-team and it's been terrific. This is a massive club - it is up there with the best.
"I didn't really appreciate that until I came here, but now I have seen it for myself, I know it should be up there in the top flight."
