The 20 year old Nigerian player plies his trade at KAA Gent in Belgium.
He was born in Jos, Plateau state and was a product of the famed GBS Academy, the same football academy in Nigeria that produced the likes of Ahmed Musa, the Super Eagles captain.
He had played for Dutch Club, AFX Ajax before joining Gent.
He received his first call-up for Nigeria by coach Daniel Amokachi in March 2015 and made his debut on the 25th of the same month in an international friendly against Uganda, when he replaced Anthony Ujah after 59 minutes in the game. Simon scored his first goal for Nigeria in an international friendly against Niger on 8 September 2015, the second in a 2-0 win.
