PSG recently activated a buyback option to re-sign Simons from PSV after an outstanding season in the Netherlands for the 20-year-old, who finished as topscorer in the Eredivisie with 19 goals.

"We have been able to sign an exceptional young talent in Xavi Simons. He is one of the top attacking midfielders in his age group in Europe and has everything needed to take the Bundesliga by storm with his individual quality," said RB Leipzig sporting dierector Max Eberl.

Xavi is the latest young talent to choose RB Leipzig, which underlines the reputation that RBL enjoy based on the club’s work and its ambitions."

Simons himself said:

"The Bundesliga is one of the best leagues in Europe and RB Leipzig are one of the best teams in the Bundesliga. Coming to Leipzig is the right step for me because RBL constantly show how to develop young players and be successful with them.


"I’m joining a club that regularly plays Champions League football. The squad has the perfect mix of lots of young and experienced players, and the whole club is hungry for success. I was immediately impressed by RB Leipzig’s style of play and I strongly believe that my qualities will be a good match for this team and we can achieve a lot together. I can hardly wait to play with my new teammates and to start the new season. Leipzig – I can’t wait!"
