West Bromwich proposed plan to sign Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Miss for the rest of the season went up in flames on Wednesday afternoon after the club formally announced that the Nigerian star won’t be joining in the Baggies.
Birminghamlive reported on Wednesday that coach Sam Allardyce has cooled his interest in the former Leicester City winger after the club eggheads started in clear terms they won’t be splashing any more cash on players’ transfer.
Having overcome a series of Covid-19 protocols, Musa arrived in the UK last week and was certified fit by West Bromwich medicals and sports science staffs. But Baggies hierarchy later kicked against sanctioning his signing on financial grounds.
Only last week, Super Eagles gaffer, Gernot Rohr had expressed optimism about the player’s impending move to an EPL side in the coming days, but the latest developments would be seen as a huge setback for a player who is determined to return to top-flight football once again.
Musa is bent on returning to top-flight action after he mutually terminated his lucrative contracts with Saudi Arabia outfit Al-Nassr last October.
Unknown to many, director of football at Leicester City FC, Steve Walsh had advised the Baggies boss to consider the former CSKA Moscow star as West Bromwich battle to stay afloat at the end of the season.
Musa scored five goals in 33 appearances for Leicester City, which included six Champions League appearances, but the speedy winger played some of his best football in Russia with CSKA Moscow.
The 28 years old winger has been searching for regular playing time at club level first-team ahead of the Super Eagles AFCON qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho next month.
