FC Nantes star Moses Simon has declared his desire to remain with FC Nantes after his current loan deal from Spanish side Levante expires at the end of the season.

Moses Simon has been in excellent form since his summer arrival on France's west coast. The Nigerian international striker is versatile - he can play wide or through the middle - fast, powerful and incisive and is now a mainstay in Christian Gourcuff's front line.

Distinguished

The 24-year-old currently sits seventh on the assists chart with six goals set up for his team-mates, but in Round 23 it was his daring solo run and goal in the narrow defeat to Paris Saint-Germain that caught the eye. The club will definitely be pleased that Simon has openly declared his intention of remaining at the club after his loan from Levante expires.

"I feel good here, I want to stay at Nantes," said Simon in the press conference ahead of Les Canaris' Round 24 clash in Dijon on Saturday night. "My decision has been made. After that, it's the management that will decide.

Bargain!

If Nantes choose to make the loan deal - which came with an option to buy - permanent, it would cost them an estimated €5m.
