Danny Simpson has been ruled out of Newcastle United's final match of the Premier League season.

The Magpies are away at Everton on Sunday but will be without right-back Simpson who missed the weekend's loss to Manchester City and last week's win over Chelsea because of an ankle injury.

"He's got a bad ankle," manager Alan Pardew told the Evening Chronicle.

"He's got no chance for Everton. I think his chances are for next year now."
