Transfer Talk: Hull City boss Leonid Slutsky hints of loan move for Musa


EnglishChampionship club Hull City are mauling overall move for Nigeria forward Ahmed Musa.

With a threadbare squad, the Tigers were dealt a huge blow on Tuesday night when Abel Hernandez was stretchered off the field against Wolves with an Achilles issue.

Leonid Slutsky has hinted that move for Leicester City’s Ahmed Musa is possible this summer.

The former CSKA Moscow attacker is seen as solution to the injury crisis been encountered in the team attack.

After Tuesday’s 3-2 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers, Slutsky was quoted by Hull Daily Mail as saying:

“We have some loan options and maybe at the end of the transfer window getting players from the Premier League is possible,” Slutsky said. “We are waiting for the decision of big clubs on some players.

“He’s not our player but of course every coach is better working with players he knows and of course I worked with Musa for five years. I know him and he knows me, it is normal.

“His position is not the only important one though in this situation.”

Musa, 24, scored just two goals in 18 matches for the Foxes last season and appears to be heading for the exit door later this month.

He made the majority of those appearances under former boss Claudio Ranieri and fell out of favour when Craig Shakespeare took over the reins in February.

Turkish Super Lig side Fenerbahce has also indicated interest in the service of the Nigerian.
