Danny Simpson would be shrewd Celtic addition on a free transfer

Celtic are reportedly considering a move for free agent Danny Simpson and will give the available defender a chance to earn a contract with them.

The 32-year-old is a free agent after his contract expired with Leicester City this summer, where he played an important role in winning the 2015/16 Premier League.

According to the Scottish Sun, the English full-back will join up with Celtic next week and try to win a deal at Parkhead.

 

The Bhoys desperately need a right-back in the transfer window, as centre-back Kristoffer Ajer is filling in as emergency cover in that role right now during Champions League qualifiers.

Some people may feel that Simpson’s best days are behind him, but he still has the quality to compete in the Premier League and could make a positive impact if given the chance in Scotland.

The right-back played nine times at senior level last season across all competitions and it would be a slight risk given his lack of football in the last year.

But he was part of the famous Leicester title-winning season and his strengths lie in defending with his back to goal.

Simpson could definitely slot in nicely to the Celtic backline if he impresses during his trial with the Scottish giants and perhaps improve the defence with his experience.
