Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew isn't giving up on Danny Simpson penning a new deal.

They have to date been unable to reach any agreement with Simpson, whose contract negotiations have now been put on hold until the summer.

Pardew said: "We will just run to the summer and see where we go then.

"I'm not disappointed or hopeful about it - it's just business. He either does a deal here or he doesn't - and if he doesn't do a deal, we will get somebody else."
