The 19-year-old attacking midfielder, who played for the Gunners' reserve team at Carrow Road last month, is expected to sign a new 2½-year deal at the Emirates Stadium before Christmas.

Simpson has made three first team appearances in all for Arsenal, scoring twice in their 3-0 Carling Cup win over Wigan last month and appearing as a substitute in their 2-0 quarter-final defeat at Burnley last night.
