Nigeria winger Ahmed Musa has expressed his desire to join recently crowed Premier League chsmpions Leicester City.
Musa, 23, scored 13 goals in 30 games in the Russian league this season and was recently the subject of a bid of around €30 million from the Foxes, according to club’s coach Leonid Slutsky.
Both clubs are in advanced talks while the player is holidaying in Nigeria, and Musa told reporters that he is looking forward to the switch
“They have been talking since January, but it didn’t happen,” he said. “Now, I’m just waiting for them to finish. If they agree, why not? I’ll be happy to join.”
Musa has been excused from Nigeria’s friendlies with Mali and Luxembourg to take part in a testimonial game for former Nigeria captain Joseph Yobo, and he paid tribute to his ex-teammate.
“Yobo is a great guy,” he added. “And the fact that so many players are here from different generations of Nigerian football, shows the kind of person he is.”
