Super Eagles and KAA Gent winger, Simon will feature in a new role for his club KAA Gent this season, can report.

The winger, who plays offensively from both sides of the wings for both club and country, may be used in the role that saw his compatriot at Chelsea Victor Moses shine last season for the London club as Coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck tries out a new formation to help the cause of the former champions.

In his usual role last season, the winger featured in all games for the club, scoring five goals and was a key member of the squad as he started 24 out of the 30 games of the season.

He has been a subject of transfer in recent weeks but the frenzy over his departure from Gent seems to have mellowed for now, as it seems the former AS Trencin winger will stay for another season at the Belgian club.
