Flying Eagles Star, Simon, Snubs Liverpool

Nigeria’s junior international not in a hurry to quit current club

Nigeria winger Moses Simon says that Liverpool are amongst the clubs interested in snapping him up, but he is planning on remaining with current club Gent for at least one further season.

Gent only pounced to snap up Simon from Slovenian side AS Trencin in the winter transfer window this year, but he instantly made a big splash in Belgium and caught the eye of several elite clubs. The Belgian side rate the winger highly and have slapped a €20m asking price on his head, arguing that such a sum is not excessive considering English clubs want the Nigerian.

He told AfricanFootball: “Fenerbahce, Dortmund and Liverpool are among the clubs who are interested in me. “But I prefer to stay for at least one more season with Gent before deciding what I will do. “I still have three years left on my contract with Gent, but the German and the English leagues could interest me in the future.” In 17 appearances in the Belgian top flight this season, Moses scored seven goals and provided his teammates with four assists.
