Dutch boss urges Xavi Simons to reject PSG and other top clubs

NewsDutch boss urges Xavi Simons to reject PSG and other top clubs

Netherlands boss Ronald Koeman has urged PSV starlet Xavi Simons to stay in the Eredivisie next season, despite the youngster being heavily linked with a transfer to one of the big clubs in Europe. One of these is Paris Saint-Germain, the club Simons left to join PSV last August. The 20-year-old did not need a lot of time to settle in at his new club as Simons is currently considered as one of the leading players in the Dutch league.

On Sunday a stellar performance by Simons helped PSV beat league rivals Ajax 3-0 and claiming second place in the Eredivisie. After the game Koeman joined football talkshow Studio Voetbal and gave his opinion on Simons and the possibility of a transfer. “I think it would be very good for him to stay one more year at PSV,” Koeman said.

The Dutch coached revealed he spoke with Simons earlier this week: “I can’t reveal what we talked about, but these next steps are extremely important. I consider Xavi to be someone who weighs up his choices very carefully.” It was reported earlier that PSG had installed a buy-back clause in the contract of Simons at PSV, but both the Dutch club and forward himself denied such a clause is present.
