Super Eagles skipper Ahmed Musa is reportedly set for a return to the Nigerian Professional Football League with Kano Pillars touted as the striker’s possible destination.
The former CSKA Moscow winger has been without a club since leaving Saudi Arabia outfits Al Nassr in October 2020.
Recall that Musa’s proposed move to English Premier League outfit West Brom hit rock bottom last month, after the club confirmed the fleet-footed winger exceeded their budget.
His lack of involvement in club football recently drew public attention as many faulted his inclusion in the Super Eagles squad that played the doubl-header AFCON qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho in March.
The 28-year-old will relish a return to the NPFL to join former club Kano Pillars, where he set a goal scoring record in before moving to Dutch club VVV-Venlo.
According to the latest report by ACL Sports, an unnamed Kano Pillars official revealed that Ahmed Musa would be rejoining them soon.
“Musa has practically agreed to the deal and what is left is just to iron out details of the deal.
“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.”
Musa holds a record as the highest goal scoring Nigerian in the World Cup with four goals following his exploit at the 2014 and 2018 editions.
Musa’s return to the Nigerian League will not come as a surprise to football faithfuls as some ex-internationals have also enjoyed spells in the domestic scene heading into the twilight of their illlustrious career.
