French Ligue One club FC Nantes is in advanced discussion with Nigeria’s Super Eagles winger over a contract extension.
The Nigerian international’s current contract with Les Canaris is set to expire in June 2024.
If the Nigerian winger does not sign a contract extension with Nantes, he will be able to discuss his availability with clubs in January and sign a pre-contract deal.
The former Gent forward’s current contract status has been attracting interest from several Ligue 1 clubs including Lyon.
Simon has been a major influence at Nantes since he arrived at the club in 2019, and that has continued this season.
The 28-year-old has 3 goals and 5 assists in 17 Ligue 1 appearances this season.
