Super Eagles forward Moses Simon has been ruled out of Gent’s away clash at Mouscron-Peruwelz this weekend, Completesportsnigeria.com can report.
Simon who has been linked with a January move to Italian side Fiorentina is currently ill and has not been listed for the trip to Stade Le Canonnier in Mouscron.
But the 20-year-old could return for Gent’s UEFA Champions League clash away to Valencia next Tuesday at the Mestalla Stadium.
Simon has played ten Jupiler League games this season without scoring, despite scoring twice in his four international appearances for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
His last goal for Gent was in April in his side’s 2-0 win over Kortrijk. Gent are currently second on the log with 20 points from ten games.
Simon scored seven goals in 17 appearances for Gent last season as they lifted the title.
