Nigerian Super Eagles and Nantes Simon Moses is close to landing a new deal with the French side after his latest goal in a Coupe de France tie against Olympique Lyon on Saturday.
The winger’s 87th minute effort at the Stade de la Beaujoire saw him take his total overhaul of goals for the season to six .
As previously reported, the five million euros purchase option introduced into the deal taking Simon from Spanish side Levante to Nantes last summer will be automatically activated if he (Simon) scores 10 goals across all competitions or plays 25 matches.
The former Gent star needs four more goals or has to play three more matches for the obligation to buy him permanently to be triggered.
Of the 22 matches Moses has participated in for Nantes, 20 were as a starter, including 17 games in the French top-flight.
He joined Levante on a permanent deal in August 2018, signing a multi-year contract until the end of the 2022-2023 season.
