The French Ligue 1 side has triggered the option to sign Moses Simon on a permanent deal.
Moses Simon has agreed to a four-year deal with French side Nantes, after an impressive loan deal.
The winger, after struggling to find form last season at Levante, jumped the ship to the Canaries on a loan for the 2019-20 season.

However, the struggles in Spain were put behind in France, as Simon ended the season with nine goals and eight assists for Nantes in all competitions.
His contributions didn’t go unrewarded, as he was voted as the Canaries player of the season, and earned himself a nomination for the Vivian Foe award.
Nantes are believed to be parting with a fee said to be around €6.5m for the permanent signature of Moses.
Internationally, Simon has been a regular since Gernot Rohr took over the Super Eagles job in 2016 and he was part of the team that won a bronze medal at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Since he made his international debut for Nigeria in March 2015, Simon has scored five goals in 33 appearances for the Super Eagles.
