Super Eagles’ winger, Moses Simon has been confirmed with an extended stay at FC Nantes of France, following the French Ligue 1 club’s decision to grant him a full contract in the team , and he quickly put pen on a four-year deal.
Simon had initially been on loan from Levante of Spain, who were eager to have him back this summer, but Nantes opted to play the cards on a purchase option that had been included in their agreement with the Spanish side.
A report by Ouest-France revealed that Nantes, who paid the wages of Negron ex-internationals like Samson Siasia and Wilson Oruma in years past, as well as a recent loan deal with Chidozie Awaziem, readily took up the option to sign Simon due to his sterling form during the season.
Following his successful loan spell, the 24-year-old former SK Trencin of Slovakia and KAA Gent of Belgium dazzler has now been handed a four-year contract that will run until June 30, 2024, and he becomes Nantes’ first signing of this year’s summer transfer window.
It was further gathered that ‘The Canaries’ paid five million Euros to Levante as stipulated in the loan agreement that made Simon Nantes’ highest paid player on 150,000 Euros monthly and the Kaduna-born winger, who has won 30 caps for Nigeria, justified his value with nine goals and eight assists to his name across all competitions for the French Ligue 1 side.
