A battle-hardened defender who flourished under Claudio Ranieri, Fulham should act quickly to snap up Simpson in the coming days.
One of the major frustrations among Fulham supporters is the lack of transfer business done in the first fortnight of the window, which left the Whites depleted against Burnley and resulted in an underwhelming loss.
Fulham’s defence has been the major weak point all season, and with the poor form of Timothy Fosu-Mensah and the diligent but Championship-quality performances of Cyrus Christie, the Whites would do well to sign Simpson.
Even at 32 years of age, the right back possesses searing pace and quality in attacking positions — two attributes that will be key to his utilisation as a wingback in Ranieri’s system.
Opportunities have been hard to come by for Simpson at the King Power this year, after the signing of Ricardo Pereira demoted the Englishman to second choice at the back.
An ideal move for both the out-of-favour Danny Simpson and the desperate Fulham backline, the Whites should swoop for the Premier League winner as soon as possible in order to kickstart a survival bid.
