Newcastle United are negotiating with Manchester United to finalise a deal with the Old Trafford club for right-back Danny Simpson, Vital has learnt.

The Magpies are keen on wrapping up a deal for the highly-rated defender, and if the buzz around St James’Park is to be believed, the Toon are close to reaching a settlement.

The fee is yet to be disclosed, however, it is understood that £2 million would satisfy the Red Devils.

Chris Hughton is also said to be monitoring several other transfer targets, and a host of new faces is expected to grace the North East club in the coming month.
