Nigeria captain Musa settles for local side Kano Pillars


Nigeria captain Ahmed Musa looks set to play his game at home after failing to secure a club overseas.

Kano Pillars on Wednesday morning confirmed the signing of the Super Eagles skipper.

The club said Musa had signed a deal with the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side until the end of the season. The speedy winger is not new to Pillars after a stint with the Kano club in 2009 in which he finished as the NPFL’s top scorer with 18 goals.

“Ahmed Musa is our own and Pillars FC will continue to support him anytime and anywhere he found himself,” Pillars media officer Rilwanu Idris Malikawa said.

He added that the club had agreed to the deal after discussions with Musa and the League Management Company of Nigeria (LMC). Amongst the contractual agreement reached, is that Musa will leave if he gets an offer overseas.

Musa has been without a club since he left Al Nassr of Saudi Arabia last year and almost joined West Brom this year.
