The free arrival of the Dutch midfielder was quickly hailed as a very nice move for the future. However, not everything goes as planned. And for good reason, Xavi Simons had to settle for a short minute in Ligue 1 against Strasbourg last April, and 12 minutes in the Coupe de France against Caen in February. Therefore, although he continues to give his maximum with the U19s, Xavi Simons begins to get impatient as his contract ends next June with PSG .

Extension stalled, Xavi Simons demands his departure
