Moses Daddy Simon, Nigeria international has joined French Ligue 1 club, FC Nantes, on loan from La Liga club Levante.

Simon was among the bronze winning Super Eagles campaign in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nation in Egypt.

“FC Nantes welcomes the arrival of Moses Daady Simon and welcomes him”, the French club said on their website.

The footballer is also excited with the move. He told SCORENigeria:

“I am at FC Nantes to give my best and to be part of the club’s aspiration of the season.

“It gladdens my heart to know that former Super Eagles player played here in the past and the fans still remember Samson Siasia.

“Playing week in, week out is the major target of any player and I am not an exemption of that. I want to play football regularly to justify what I earn, that is the reason of me going to France.”

Nantes is expecting the winger to bring all its percussion and technical quality to their offensive for the 2019-2020 season, which began last weekend.
