Newcastle United fullback Danny Simpson is ready to move south.

The Sun says West Ham United face competition from Fulham and QPR as they move for Simpson.

Defender Simpson, 26, has been strongly linked with a move to Upton Park.

He is believed to want a move to London so he can be closer to his girlfriend, The X Factor judge Tulisa.

And both Martin Jol and Harry Redknapp are also tracking his progress.
