*Player rejects England move

Super Eagles dazzling winger, Moses Simon has expressed his desire to remain with French side FC Nantes after he reportedly rejected a move to Championship side Leeds for the remainder of the season, reports.

The Levante of Spain forward, who is currently on lown at Nantes, had turned down a chance to join the Marcelo Bielsa side last summer before moving to France but it appears Leeds have identified the Nigerian as a perfect choice to aide their promotion hopes.

Meanwhile, Nantes have already made advance plans to make Simon’s stay at the Stade de la Beaujoire a permanent one after series of impressive displays since making the move to the French city.

The 24-year-old has been directly involved in 12 goals this season (5 goals 7 assists), ranking him 4th in the Ligue1 behind the duo of Islam Slimani and Angel Di Maria, with Yoann Court sitting just above him with 7 assists.
