Queens Park Rangers defender Danny Simpson insists that his exit from Newcastle United was down to football reasons rather than a desire for more money.

Queens Park Rangers defender Danny Simpson has denied speculation that he turned down a new deal at old club Newcastle United in search of money.

The 26-year-old completed his switch to the Championship side last week after negotiations with the Magpies broke down towards the end of last season.

Simpson told reporters: "There weren't any arguments. It's football – these things happen.

"The fans need to know I wasn't being greedy. It was just one of those things. I think the club wanted to go in a different direction. I knew that even when they offered the contract."

Simpson made 115 appearances for Newcastle in his three years at the club.
