NEWCASTLE have brought in Manchester United right back Danny Simpson on loan until January.

The 22-year-old, who enjoyed a spell with Sunderland two years ago before going on loan at Ipswich and Blackburn, is expected to be included in the squad that faces Reading tomorrow. He has been given the number 12 shirt.

The Salford-born defender is product of the Old Trafford youth system and was one of several of Sir Alex Ferguson's youngsters who were sent to Belgian side Royal Antwerp to gain first team experience. Simpson made 14 appearances in the Championship for Sunderland under then-manager Roy Keane and he boasts Premier and Champions League experience with Man United.
