Man Utd’s Simpson keen on Sunderland move

Simpson told the Sunday Sun: “Nothing was said about a permanent move when I joined on loan – the deal was just until the end of the season.

“But if the chance of a permanent move to Sunderland came up, I’d jump at it.

“At Sunderland, I’ve had the chance to play in the first-team and it’s been terrific. This is a massive club – it is up there with the best.

“I didn’t really appreciate that until I came here, but now I have seen it for myself, I know it should be up there in the top flight.”
