Exclusive By Johnny Edward:
Completesportsnigeria.com can exclusively report that Nigeria U-23s coach Samson Siasia is in Belgium to woo Gent winger Moses Simon for next month's CAF U-23 Cup of Nations billed to hold in Senegal.
Siasia who recently named his home-based squad is desperate to add the former Flying Eagles star to his pool but wants the player's assurance before including him in his foreign-based squad for the competition.
"Siasia has spoken to Simon on his availability for the competition but I don't know yet if the player consented to his proposal," a source in the Super Eagles camp revealed to Completesportsnigeria.com.
Simon who has scored twice in four international games for the Super Eagles has also been linked with a move to EPL side Tottenham Hotspur.
The Nigerian international has been impressive for the Sunday Oliseh side since making his debut for the three-time African Nations Cup winners.
