According to Goal readers, the newly promoted Premier League side would be the best bet for the Nigeria wideman

It’s time for Moses Simon to leave KAA Gent, according to Goal readers, with newly promoted Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion the best destination for the Nigeria international.

Earlier in the month, we asked readers to vote for which destination would be the best for the Belgium-based wideman, who’s been the subject of extensive transfer rumours this window.

You voted in your droves, and Brighton—who have reached the Premier League for the first time—has been named the best possible destination for Simon, with 41 percent of respondents suggesting that the Seagulls should recruit the West African.

Reports in the English media in mid July suggested that the Seagulls had had an £8.4 million bid for the Super Eagle rejected by Gent, but there have been no further additions since then.

However, Simon did start in the Buffalos first Jupiler League game of the season—a 3-2 away defeat at a Cristian Ceballos-inspired St. Truiden on Sunday evening.

The second most popular option in our poll was Tottenham Hotspur, who have also been named as potential suitors for the attacker, with 18 percent of you plumping for Spurs as Simon’s best bet.

Unequivocally, Goal readers are tipping Simon for the exit door, with only eight percent of respondents suggesting that he’d be best served by staying with Gent.

Liverpool (15 percent) and West Bromwich Albion (17 percent) were the fourth and third most popular options on the poll.
