Danny Simpson has been warned that he needs to battle for his place at Newcastle United.

Simpson was linked with a move to Aston Villa during the last window, and reports have suggested that talks over a new deal have floundered.

Now Toon chief Alan Pardew has told the former Manchester United youngster that he will have to battle for his place.

"He's got a future here but he's got a fight on his hands because Ryan Taylor has done terrific at left-back and now we've got Davide Santon who can play both positions. So he needs to play well now," he said.

"I don't know where the stuff about Danny Simpson (leaving) came from.

"It's totally untrue as far as I'm concerned, anyway."
