DONE DEAL: Bristol City sign Leicester hero Danny Simpson

Bristol City have completed the signing of right-back Danny Simpson until the end of the season.

The 34-year-old arrives in BS3 as a free agent where he is reunited with manager Nigel Pearson.

The pair worked together at Leicester City during the 2014/15 season before the Foxes went on to lift the Premier League title.

Simpson has won promotion from the Championship on three occasions: with Sunderland and Newcastle and once via the play-offs with QPR as well as a Premier League winners' medal with Leicester.

Pearson said: “He offers us experience, know-how and, for someone who is in his 30s now, he still has that appetite to play. We have ability in our ranks and a bright future with our young players but it's about striking the balance with the know-how in game situations.

“I know Danny well, he's had an excellent career with his exposure in the Premier League so it's a real positive to make this addition at this point in the season."
