Gourcuff who has continued to recognized the consistency in the performances of the diminutive dazzler tagged the Super Eagles’ attacking pearl as a threat to defenders in the league.
“He is an extremely interesting player. He has an individual capacity to make differences. He is fast, technical, very strong. Obviously, for a defence, he is a poison! He is a very good recruit for Nantes,” the coach told journalists ahead of yesterday’s league game against Dijon.

Simon, who is enjoying the fruitfulness of his loan spell with Nantes from Levante of Spain, where he struggled for game time, has expressed his desire to remain with the club.
“Yes, of course, I want to stay. I feel very good at Nantes. However, my future does not depend solely on me!” he told journalists during the pre-match conference yesterday.

Simon has been a consistent performer for the French side and has scored eight goals and provided eight other goals in 25 matches across all competitions for Nantes.
