Ipswich have signed Manchester United defender Danny Simpson on loan for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old has played eight times for United this term, but he is set to lose his place in the first team once Gary Neville returns from injury.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said: "It is good for the lad. The boy needs games."

Simpson is in Ipswich's squad for Saturday's game at Scunthorpe, subject to the completion of the deal.

And he will be hoping to win promotion from the Championship for the second season in a row after being on loan at Sunderland when they were promoted a year ago.
