A report from The Sun has claimed that former Manchester United, Newcastle United and Leicester City defender Danny Simpson is training with Championship outfit West Brom as he looks to find a new club.

32-year-old right-back Danny Simpson is available on a free transfer after he was released by Premier League side Leicester City upon the expiration of his contract at the King Power Stadium. Now, as he continues to search for a new club, it has been reported that he is training with Championship side West Brom as he looks to maintain and build up his fitness ahead of finding a new club.

Over the course of the summer, Simpson has been linked with a number of sides. Premier League outfit Crystal Palace have been said keen on the right-back as they look to further their defensive department after allowing Aaron Wan-Bissaka to join Manchester United. French side Amiens have also been linked, with a number of Championship clubs also reportedly alerted by his availability.

Simpson has plenty of experience at both Championship and Premier League level. Having come through the youth academy at Manchester United, he also spent stints on loan with Royal Antwerp, Sunderland, Ipswich Town, Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United, the latter of whom he ended up joining on a permanent basis.

Simpson spent four years at Newcastle before joining Queens Park Rangers, playing for the R’s for just over a year until leaving for Leicester. After helping the Foxes remain in the Premier League, he helped the club win the title under Claudio Ranieri, staying with Leicester until this summer. Now, he will be hoping to impress at West Brom to help him find a new club sooner rather than later.
