Simon Joins Nantes On One-Season Loan From Levante

Nigeria winger Moses Simon has joined French Ligue 1 club, FC Nantes on a season long loan deal from LaLiga side, Levante, reports Completesports.com.

Nantes have the option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.

Simon is the third Nigeria international to join a French club this summer following Victor Osimhen and Henry Onyekuru’s arrival at Lille and Monaco respectively.

The 24-year-old scored one goal in 19 league appearances for Levante last season.

Simon previously had stints in Europe with Slovakia’s, AS Trencin and KAA Gent in the Belgian League.

The winger scored 13 goals in 33 matches across all competitions during his one season stay with Trencin.

In three seasons with Gent, he featured in 136 games, scored 21 goals and recorded 18 assists.

He was a member of the Super Eagles squad that won bronze medal at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

    Simon is good but his per goal ratio is too poor for a winger. I pray he improves on this aspect of his game and proceed to the next level.

  • Good move bro kudos to coach Rohr for his good work,because he is the head of this moves if i may let u guys know

  • Moses Simon lost a bit of his edge after coming back from injury in 2018.

    He became too predictable and his dribbles less incisive.

    But one thing that improved massively in his game at Levante is the defensive elements; thanks to his deployments as a wingback on occasions.

    Now that he has moved to Nantes, hopefully the offensive aspects of his game that paled off would come back to life and we can see the Moses Simon of Gent and Nigeria v Cameroon (2017).

    “I’ve always known about the competitive nature of the French league when I played in Belgium with Gent,” Simon told BBC Sport

    To some of us fans, Moses Simon has another competition in his hands: to prove that he is the best Super Eagles forward in France this season.

    What with Kalu, Onyekuru and Osimhen to compete with, I am keen to see who will score the highest amount of goals and make the most telling impact for their various French clubs.
