Fulham looking to complete deal to bring in Simpson

Fulham are looking to tie up a deal to bring Danny Simpson back to west London from Leicester City.

The right-back, 32, was promoted with QPR in 2014 and later that year joined Leicester, where he went on to play a prominent role in the Foxes side which sensationally won the Premier League title under Claudio Ranieri.

Now Fulham boss Ranieri wants to take him to Craven Cottage to help keep the Whites in the top flight.

Ranieri is looking to shore up his defence and wants a more solid option at right-back.

Fulham want to end Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s season-long loan from Manchester United, while Leicester have indicated that they are willing to let Simpson leave on loan.

Simpson, who won promotion from the Championship while on loan at Sunderland and then Newcastle prior to his time at QPR, has made just four league appearances for Leicester this season.
