Simpson: In talks
Jay Simpson is in talks with a couple of Championship clubs, his agent has confirmed to skysports.com.
The Arsenal forward spent last season on loan at Queens Park Rangers and impressed with 12 goals.
Now a number of clubs are looking to land him, including Leeds, Hull City, Crystal Palace and QPR.
Skysports.com understands that it is Leeds and Hull who are leading the chase, and Simpson could be set to make a decision before the weekend.
"I can confirm a couple of clubs have agreed a deal with Arsenal and we are now in talks with them," his advisor Uben Gray told skysports.com.
Sources in the capital suggest Arsenal have agreed a deal of around £1.2million for Simpson - who has featured three times for the Gunners, scoring twice.
