Paris Saint-Germain has confirmed that Xavi Simons will be loaned to RB Leipzig for the upcoming season, following his transfer back to the French club.

Simons has signed a four-year deal with PSG, keeping him at the Parc des Princes until at least 2027.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder initially joined PSV Eindhoven from PSG last summer on a five-year deal, but the Ligue 1 side included a buy-back clause in the agreement, which they have now exercised. The transfer fee is believed to be as low as €6 million.

PSG views Simons as one of the game’s top talents and sees the financial deal as advantageous given the minimal buy-back fee they paid. Loaning him out to RB Leipzig also presents a valuable opportunity for Simons to gain further experience in another European league.

During his debut season at PSV in the 2022-23 campaign, Simons impressed with 19 goals and eight assists in 34 Eredivisie appearances, finishing as the league’s joint top scorer and helping the club secure a second-place finish.

His standout performances earned him a call-up to the Netherlands national team, where he received his first cap during the 2022 World Cup round of 16 match against the United States in Qatar.

Having initially joined PSG from Barcelona in 2019 after spending nine years in La Masia, Simons made 11 appearances in all competitions for the Parisian club, contributing to their successful 2021-22 Ligue 1 title-winning campaign.

Last season proved to be a turning point for Simons, as he demonstrated his potential on the field, dispelling any doubts about his ability to deliver on the immense hype surrounding him. Now, with the opportunity to play for RB Leipzig, he can further develop his skills and continue his ascent in the football world.
