Simpson will be ineligible to face Manchester United in the League

Blackburn Rovers have captured defender Danny Simpson from Manchester United on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old right-back made eight first-team appearances for Sir Alex Ferguson's side last season.

Simpson has had loan spells with Sunderland, Ipswich and Belgian outfit Royal Antwerp in the past.

He becomes Paul Ince's third signing since his appointment at Ewood Park, following Chilean Carlos Villanueva and England keeper Paul Robinson.

And the former Red Devils midfielder has revealed he is hoping to sign two more players before the start of the season.

Ince said: "There's another couple of targets we are looking at and we hope to bring them through the door in the next couple of weeks."
