Leicester City manager Claude Puel is reportedly considering shipping some of his fringe players on loan this coming weeks, and Scottish champions Celtic can benefit from this.
As reported by The Leicester Mercury, Simpson is one of that could the King Power stadium before August 31 as he currently finds himself third-choice behind Danilo Pereira and Daniel Amartey, despite playing a strong role in Leicester’s team that won the Premier League title just over two years ago.
The Transftermkt €5million-rated would surely want to leave the Foxes in search of a regular football, and while he can only leave the club on loan in England, he can also join Celtic as well on a loan deal.
Brendan Rodgers’ side suffered a blow when they got knocked out of the Champions League this week following a 3-2 aggregate defeat to AEK Athens, with the Hoops defence proving to be one of their biggest problems in the 2-1 second-leg defeat in Athens.
Simpson, 31, has the predigree to be a success with Celtic given he’s a pacey player and has experience of winning a Premier League title, and he would be a huge hit in both the Scottish Premiership and the Europa League given he clearly wipes the floor with Lustig.
