Exclusive – Moses Simon Shuns Chance To Make January Transfer To Leeds United
https://www.owngoalnigeria.com/2020/01/14/exclusive-moses-simon-shuns-chance-to-make-january-transfer-to-leeds-united/
January 14, 2020010

Nigeria international and Nantes wing forward Moses Simon has turned down the chance to move to English Championship side Leeds United in the ongoing January transfer window, Owngoalnigeria.com understands.

Simon has been in fine form for Nantes since moving to the Ligue 1 side on loan from Spanish Laliga side Levante in the summer. So far he has four goals and five assists in the league.

He recently won the goal of the first half of the season for the club with his solo effort in the 8-1 thrashing of Paris FC in a cup game where he scored a hattrick earning him the award ahead of three others.

The 24 year old was approached by contacts of the English Championship team but he turned it down insisting on waiting till the end of the season before making a decision on his next decision. It’s almost certain that he will leave Levante in the summer.

Nantes have already made it known that they will triggering the option of signing Simon permanently in the summer when his loan deal expires but it appears he would be sold off immediately by the club.

Bad move, I think Leeds might be in the EPL next season.

They play good football.

Let me get this straight...
Its a bad move on his part, to continue his stay at a Ligue 1 club that is currently in 4th place and has a very good chance of making the Champions League, BUT instead, move to an English Championship team that has no gurantee of making it to the Premiership?
Baffling logic on your par!

You need to research this further..

He MIGHT also be in the CL next season instead of in a relegation battle with leeds.

Leeds have a good manager and good history. Playing in the EPL is better than playing in Ligue one.

Let them win promotion first then he can re-visit their offer but for now he is playing at a much higher level

Once they gain promotion and get the EPL money. They may no longer be interested in him.

Etebo and Stoke on my mind as I read this.

Actually, it might actually be a good choice in the long run, though I'd advise Simon holds off until they actually secure promotion.
Leeds IMHO are pretty guaranteed promotion and they won't be making the mistakes of last season.

They are a BIG club and I suspect once they re-arrive in the EPL they won't be leaving any time soon.
They have a young exciting squad and as we saw last week v Arsenal, they are quite capable of matching a top half EPL team whilst playing their own brand of possession football.

Vastly different scenarios.

Simon, if the story is credible, has a chance to join a club, one of the greats of the English game, on the cusp of a revival, with backing from Arab money. Plus they have one of the great thinkers in the game as a coach.

Its a choice between the potential for long term benefits and holding to what one has...

If u were the owner of Leeds, would you come back to sign him on gaining promotion?

Nothing that you implied is certain, Levante are a La liga side in a European qualifying position,Moses is playing well there and if he rejects a call from Leeds it probably means he’s happy where he is or maybe he has had better offers so.........?

Txj,

There are important similarities and one HUGE one is the Championship Division. That is where the scenario is starkly similar.

Well, it was the same coach last season and the team failed at the last moments. I do not question his pedigree, as a matter of fact I have respected him over the years but that has nothing to do with anything IMHO as per Simon's decision. Let's hope it is different for Bielsa and Leeds this time around. The history of the club matters little. There are other English clubs with great history languishing outside the Premier League at the moment.

The fact of the matter is that it is a gamble. Leeds could make it back to the elite level and it would be great if the lad had joined them in the process. They could also fail and many will raise the same issues that were raised as per Etebo.

Comon dude! Of course we know both clubs are in the championship; why state the obvious? :biggrin:

Anyways, you are right there are similar historically great clubs languishing, but the differentiating factor that I cited is the planned infusion of new money by the owners of PSG. That is certainly a game changer; no?

Most of life's endeavors involves a gamble...

Txj,

I do not dispute money being a game changer or even Bielsa's capability. Not at all.

My point is simple -- that there is a key similarity between the two. You note that the similarity is obvious and that is just the point. Nothing else to add really.
