Levante has turned down a loan bid from French Ligue 1 side Reims for Nigeria international wing forward Moses Simon, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
Reims made their approach for the forward last week but were told in clear terms that he is not available as he features heavily in the plans of the first team coach at the club.
Simon has not enjoyed a regular run of games at the club in the league despite impressing in the games he has played in the Copa Del Rey before their exit from the tournament in the hands of defending champions Barcelona.
