The story begins
Upon signing for the Club on 30 August, 2014, Danny Simpson said: "I'm really excited. I've had a look around the facilities, which look fantastic, and had a good chat with the manager [Nigel Pearson], who I'm really looking forward to working with."
A maiden outing
In late September 2014, Danny made his debut for Leicester City from the substitutes' bench, but the match ended in a 2-0 defeat as the Foxes' form dipped going into Christmas.
The greatest Great Escape?
A debut at Palace was followed by another 14 appearances in his maiden season at the Club, including this win at Hull City which contributed to Leicester retaining their status in the top flight.
The 5000/1 outsiders
Leicester started the 2015/16 as favourites for relegation and, despite astronomical odds on them winning the title, they began life under Claudio Ranieri brightly.
The efforts of Simpson and his defensive colleagues to earn a first clean sheet of the season, against Crystal Palace, was rewarded by their manager with a day out to Peter Pizzeria in Leicester.
Shocking the world
A 3-1 win at Etihad Stadium in February 2016 made the world sit up. Simpson and co. were edging closer to a title nobody thought was possible.
The crowning moment
Following City's 1-1 draw with Manchester United - Danny's former club - a 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Tottenham on 2 May meant no team in the land could catch Leicester. Simpson was a Premier League champion.
An enormous personal achievement
Danny has so far enjoyed three promotions over his career, but he had never scaled these heights. Ten years after making the grade in senior football at Old Trafford, Simpson won English football's most prestigious prize.
The party begins!
The summer of 2016 will forever be remembered by the people of Leicester as the summer of partying, celebrating and toasting their Premier League champions.
Committing his future
In September 2016, Simpson committed the next three years of his playing career to the Football Club. "It's not just the players and coaches, but the whole club," he said. "Everyone is just so close and it's a special feeling. I'm happy that I'm staying here for another three years."
Rocking the European boat
City defeated Club Brugge, Copenhagen and Porto to win their group in the UEFA Champions League, before overcoming Sevilla across two exhilarating last-16 legs. The intrepid run ended with a narrow quarter-final defeat by Atlético Madrid.
Another 30 appearances came Simpson's way during the 2017/18 season as the Foxes began to perfect a more considered playing style with youth at its cause. As such, Danny's experience was essential at the Club.
A faultless display in Cardiff
Simpson came off the bench during a 1-0 win at Cardiff City in November 2018 to help the Foxes seal an emotional victory just seven days after the passing of the Club's beloved Chairman, Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.
Leaving a champion
In May 2019, it was announced that Danny would leave the Club. In total, Simpson made 131 appearances for the Foxes, winning the Premier League and earning a place in the Club's hall of fame. Thank you, Danny.
