Despite being in the Super Eagles camp preparing for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon, Ahmed Musa is on the verge of becoming a Hull City player.
Words emanating from the KC stadium has it that Leicester City is set to loan Musa to English championship side Hull City on a season-long loan deal.
The Tigers have held advanced talks with the Foxes in recent days and are optimistic of tying up a season-long loan deal for the Nigerian international ahead of tomorrow’s transfer deadline.
Landing Musa would be a significant coup for Hull City, 14 months after he cost Leicester City £16m.
The 24-year-old striker has struggled to make his mark in the Premier League, but the chance of working with Slutsky at Hull City after enjoying success together at CSKA Moscow has an obvious appeal.
If the deal does go through, Ahmed Musa will become the second Super Eagles player in the team this season after Ola Aina who also joined on loan from Chelsea.
