Super Eagles winger Moses Simon has made his loan move at Nantes permanently.

The 24-year-old joined the French Club on loan last summer churning out impressive performances for the Canaries.

The former Ajax prodigy has signed a four-year contract that will keep him at the club until July 2024 after his release clause was triggered.

Simon was named Nantes' player of the season after he contributed nine goals and eight assists to help the club to a 13th place finish in the French League before it was brought to an abrupt end due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Simon struggled to impress at Levante, he has cited communication barrier as one of the reasons for his poor performances in La Liga.

"At Levante, I did not play very well due to some circumstances with the coach. In Spain, the coach only spoke Spanish and I needed a translator," Simon said.

"It was easier to play in France because I understand the language more and communication is very good with the coach.

"I am enjoying my football now. The most important thing is to play. Not to sit on the bench. To have the freedom to play, have the freedom to speak and to do what you know how to do best."

Simon has attracted interest from Spain, France and China.
