Super Eagles skipper Ahmed Musa will arrive in England on Tuesday morning ahead of agreeing a deal with West Bromwich Albion.
Musa is a free agent and, according to Sportsmail earlier this month, he has been invited in by Sam Allardyce to bolster Albion’s attacking options.
The 28-year-old was due to arrive last week but there was a mix up over his arrangements to travel from Nigeria and he is now due to arrive in the early hours on Tuesday.
As a free agent he can sign out of the window but West Brom want to be convinced of his condition and fitness before they agree a contract.
Musa also has interest from Fulham and his former club CSKA Moscow.
The 95-cap Nigeria international made 33 appearances and scored 5 goals for the Foxes between 2016-2018 after signing for a then-club record fee of £16.6million.
Boss Sam Allardyce insisted there could be more incomings before the transfer deadline on Monday evening but they would have to improve the squad for him to sanction a move.
“We have until 11pm, we will try between now and 11pm to try to find two more players who are available.
“It’s not just the player, it’s also what finances are left. Time is running out but we have spent quite a considerable amount of our budget that was available.
“If we can’t get the right player in then there’s no point getting a player in who won’t improve the first team.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
