Vinícius Simon (born 17 November 1986) is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Vila Nova as a central defender.

Career[edit]

Born in Limeira, São Paulo, Simon graduated from Santos' prolific youth setup. He made his first team – and Série A – debut on 3 August 2008, starting in a 1–3 home loss against Coritiba.[1]

In January 2009 Simon was loaned to fellow league team Santo André, in a season-long deal.[2] However, he only appeared rarely for Ramalhão, which was subsequently relegated.

On 23 January 2010 Simon joined Criciúma also in a temporary deal.[3] He was regularly used during the year's Campeonato Catarinense, scoring a goal against Joinville on 4 April, and returned to Peixe in May.

Simon was sparingly used in the following years, and moved to América-MG on 26 May 2012, on loan until December.[4] He returned to Santos in January 2013, being again loaned to Sport Recife in July.[5]

In January 2014 Simon was expected to join Goiás,[6] but remained in Santos due to Edu Dracena and Gustavo Henrique's injuries;[7] however, he also suffered an injury, being sidelined until August. On 8 August he returned to action, but only played 26 minutes in a 1–2 away loss against Londrina, being taken off with two hip injuries.[8]

On 6 March 2015 Simon signed a short-term permanent deal with Vila Nova, after being released by Santos in January.[9]
