Full-back set to sign

Skysports.com understands that Newcastle have agreed a deal to sign Danny Simpson from Manchester United. The 23-year-old right-back has had a highly successful loan spell at St James' Park over the opening half of the season. He returned to Old Trafford on Tuesday, as talks over a permanent deal failed to materialise. However, the two clubs have now agreed terms and Simpson is set to pen a permanent deal on Tyneside. Simpson is set to undergo a medical on Wednesday before signing a two-and-half-year deal with Chris Hughton's side.
