Nantes coach Christian Gourcuff has hailed the impact of Nigeria international Moses Simon at the club since joining on loan from La Liga side Levante in the summer.

The 24-year-old forward has hit the ground running since moving to Stade de la Beaujoire, and scored the winner at the weekend as Nantes overcame Nice to move to second on the Ligue 1 table.

“He’s is a delight to watch, he has a well-rounded attitude with a positive spirit,” said former Algeria coach Gourcuff.

Simon has been an ever-present this season for the Canaries, but aside his goalscoring (he has two, and has laid on a further two), his selflessness was highlighted by the 64-year-old manager as his best quality.

“He works very hard for the team and is always looking out to make passes to others in better positions to score in games. That is the good part of his game many don’t appreciate.

“We are actually delighted to have a player of his pedigree. We know it’s going to be a major plus for us, coming from the Spanish league to the French league and he adapting immediately.”
