Newcastle boss Pardew won't freeze out Simpson
Pardew opted to play Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa - usually a centre-back - at right-back against Metalist Kharkiv, leaving Simpson on the bench.
But the Toon boss told the Evening Chronicle: "Danny's available.
"I have to say that Danny wants to show people he's a Premier League player.
"So Danny's in the frame, yes - he will have a role to play."
