United youngster, Danny Simpson, has played for the first team on seven occasions this season, in all four competitions. He was part of the team that was disgracefully beaten by Coventry in the League Cup, started two games in the Champions League, and has played in three league victories against Everton, Wigan and Newcastle.

Wes Brown has firmly held the position of right back in the absence of Gary Neville, and with Brown filling in at the centre due to Rio Ferdinand's injury recently, John O'Shea has been played as the full back, leaving Simpson even further down the pecking order.

Today it has been announced that Ipswich Town have secured Simpson's services on loan until the end of the season.

Gary Neville is finally set to return to the first team, after getting several games for the Reserves under his belt, meaning Simpson would have been likely not to feature again for us this season.

“It is good for the lad,†said Sir Alex Ferguson about the move. “The boy needs games and I have allowed him to go to Ipswich until the end of the season. They are a good football team and that will suit him fine.â€
Will Simpson be playing for the first team more next season?

Simpson out as Nev nears return

http://www.manutd.com/default.sps?pagegid=%7BC7DF7CEC%2D3BC3%2D4859%2DA3FD%2DFE4AAD215DD8%7D&newsid=543149

United defender Danny Simpson will again taste life in the Championship after being allowed to join Ipswich Town on loan until the end of the season.

The Reds right-back played 14 league games on loan at Sunderland last year, helping Roy Keane's side to win promotion to the top flight.

This season, Simpson has played in eight matches for United but the last of these was at the end of January when he came on as substitute in the FA Cup win over Tottenham. Although he was named in the 16 again for the Manchester derby on 10 February, Danny's opportunities have diminished during March.

“I've let Danny Simpson go on loan to Ipswich, a good football team, until the end of the season,†Sir Alex Ferguson announced on Friday morning.

“It's good for the lad - with Gary Neville coming back, the boy needs games.â€

United captain Neville played another 90 minutes for the reserves on Thursday night and now “isn't far away†from a first-team return according to Sir Alex.

The Red Devils boss was also pleased to see Mikael Silvestre play for the second string in their 4-1 derby win over Manchester City. Sir Alex said:

“For someone who hasn't played for seven months, Mikael showed tremendous energy."

It will do Simpson good imo. He will get more match practice and more experience in that sense. He looked good when he played this season and I hope he can develop into a great player for the club in the future =D

Good player.

Neville's fit now so that's why he's gone out.

Will be a United player - benefits from having Rio talking to him throughout the game.
