Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr remains tight-lipped over calling up Ahmed Musa for the side’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header against Benin Republic and Lesotho, reports Completesports.com.
Musa is looking for a new club after severing ties with Saudi outfit Al Nassr last October.
The winger was close to securing a short-term deal at Premier League club West Bromwich Albion but the Baggies pulled out of the deal because of a lack of finances.
The 28-year-old was included in the squad for November’s back-to-back qualifiers against the Leone Stars Sierra Leone despite the fact that he was clubless at that time.
Rohr however refused to confirm if his captain will be selected for both games having last played in a competitive game in November 2020.
“It’s unfortunate it didn’t work out at West Brom but I believe Musa will find another club soon,” Rohr told BBC Sport Africa.
“He has the ambition to get back as quickly as he can to play football again at club level.
“Musa made a great impact for us in big matches like against Iceland in Russia, that is a reminder of the ability he has.
“I have no doubt he can discover his best form, the happiness and joy to play again. This will be good for us because we can get to see that impact in our squad.”
