Leicester boss Rodgers tribute to Simpson

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has paid tribute to Danny Simpson.

The title winner will leave the Foxes as his contract expires.

Rodgers said, "Danny is an interesting one because there's a perception about how he works, but I have to say, he is absolutely first-class.

“He just wants to play now. He's a good player, a good guy, I have enjoyed working with him. He trains like a demon every day.

“He's at the age where he is still fit and he doesn't want to be a back-up player. He still has a few years at this level to be a starter somewhere and that's why he will move on.

"Unfortunately, he hasn't been able to play because of Ricardo (Pereira), but I'm sure he will get a great club and go on to show his talent."
