Newcastle defender Danny Simpson says that he does not expect to stay at St James' Park.

Danny Simpson has revealed that he could leave Newcastle during the January transfer window.

The 24-year-old has 18 months remaining on his current contract but has come under pressure from Davide Santon for his first-team place.

"There is a chance in the future that I will be moving, whether in the transfer window or in the summer," said Simpson at a court hearing for a speeding offence.

"I have 18 months left on my contract and I don't think it will go past that."

The defender had been linked with a move to Aston Villa during the summer transfer window.

Simpson joined Newcastle permanently from Manchester United in 2010 after spending a season on loan at St James' Park.
