Super Eagles Winger Needs 5 More Goals Or 9 Games To Become A Permanent Nantes PlayerPublished: December 12, 2019
It is all but confirmed that Super Eagles winger Moses Simon will become a permanent Nantes player in the coming weeks, barring an injury or severe loss of form.
La Liga side Levante inserted a purchase clause set at five million euros in the deal taking the Nigeria international to Nantes in August 2019.
Our colleagues at Eldesmarque
is reporting that the purchase option will be automatically activated in case Simon scores 10 goals across all competitions or plays 25 matches.
With the second half of the season yet to begin, the former Gent star is close to landing a new deal at Nantes, having netted 5 goals - two in the Ligue 1 and three in the Coupe de la Ligue.
Simon has been involved in 16 games in all competitions and should he feature in Nantes next nine matches, December 14 - February 8, then his move will be made permanent.
The 24-year-old struggled in his first season in Spain, making only 8 starts from a possible 38 in La Liga, and found the back of the net only once.
Levante are willing to have Simon back in the fold on the back of his impressive performances at Nantes but the stumbling block is that the winger's future is no longer in their hands due to the purchase clause inserted into the deal that took him to France.
