I want to take you back to June of this year and a quote from Derek Llambias: "We have the £35m from the Carroll deal, but perhaps we will keep it for the January transfer window". Danny Simpson That spoke volumes! We got the feeling 'early doors' that all was not going to go well in the summer transfer window. Now Llambias says today that we will sign "a right-back, centre-back and a striker" in January. Unless, of course, they decide to save the money for the SUMMER transfer window. This has cast more doubts over the future of Danny Simpson, after the defender came close to departing for Aston Villa on Wednesday. The right-back was on the verge of penning a five-year deal earlier in the summer, but United are now looking at alternative options.
