Xavi Simons 'transfer decision'

According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, Simons has formally informed Paris Saint-Germain that he wants to leave the club this summer, however only on another loan move.

RB Leipzig, which is where he spent last season, are keen to bring him back with Bayern also linked while Arsenal and Man United are said to have made contact.

This update comes after Simons offered a clear transfer timeline to those clubs interested in acquiring his services. He admitted: "We'll see after the Euros."

Asked specifically about returning to the French capital, he replied: "I was happy in Paris. Things have happened. Now I was in Leipzig this year. We'll see after the Euros."

Nico Williams on future

Like Simons, Nico Williams has also spoken out on his future though his verdict was very different. As quoted by Fabrizio Romano, he told La1: “I’ve just signed new deal at Athletic few weeks ago, I feel very good there.

"I’m very happy at Athletic. It’s very strange to receive questions on my future." The release clause in the region of £55million said to be in that new deal was always seen as the route to signing him by many clubs, however Williams clearly wants to remain with the La Liga club.
