Clubless Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, is on the verge of joining his former club, Kano Pillars after the completion of 2020/2021 campaign.
The 28-year-old has been without a club since leaving Al Nassr of Saudi Arabia last October.
The former Nigerian Premier league top scorer featured in the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying tie against Lesotho in March despite his inactivity at club level.
Musa is expected to rejoin Pillars in the coming days, albeit on a short-term basis.
“Musa has practically agreed to the deal and what is left is just to iron out details of the deal,” a source told SAHELIAN TIMES.
“It is practically impossible to get a deal in Europe before May when Super Eagles will reconvene for the World Cup qualifiers and he really wants to keep himself in a competitive shape for that,” the source continued
Musa, who is Nigeria’s highest-ever goalscorer at the FIFA World Cup played for Kano Pillars between 2009 and 2012.
Musa played for VVV Venlo in Netherlands, CSKA Moscow and Leicester City before he moved to Saudi Arabia.
