Moses Simon Switches to Levante


Super Eagles winger, Moses Simon, has joined Levante UD for 4.5 million pounds after he passed a routine medical with the La Liga club yesterday.

Levante was locked with French Ligue 1 Saint Etienne in the chase for the KAA Gent winger, who missed the recent World Cup in Russia no thanks to a thigh injury.

He was also linked with clubs in England and Germany.

Gent have already signed a direct replacement for the fast wide man, who has made it very clear that he wishes to move on.

He won the Belgian league with Gent in his first season after his transfer from Slovak club AS Trencin.

Another Nigerian born defender, Fikayo Tomori, it is will be spending the whole of the 2018-2019 season on loan at Championship club Derby County.

The highly-rated Nigerian defender recently penned a new contract extension deal keeping him at Stamford Bridge till June 30, 2021.

Tomori is the sixth player to be signed by manager Frank Lampard this summer and joins another Chelsea loanee Mason Mount at Pride Park.

In his first words as a Derby County player, Tomori told Rams TV: ”First of all, I am happy to be here – hopefully we can have a good year.
”I’m here to learn, I’m here to play games and I’m here to improve. I want to make the fans happy this year.
I had some good years under Jody at Chelsea. We won the FA Youth Cup a few times, the youth Champions League, but overall, he’s just a good guy.”

The former Chelsea Academy Player of the Year has played nonstop at Chelsea for more than eleven years, though he has enjoyed loan spells at Brighton and Hull City.
