Troost-Ekong’s Bursaspor Seek Loan Move For Musa

By Adeboye Amosu: Turkish club Bursaspor have reportedly contacted Leicester City over the availability of their Nigerian winger, Ahmed Musa.

The Green and White want to take the Super Eagles star on loan for the rest of the season.


Musa joined the Foxes from Russian club CSKA Moscow last season but played a peripheral role first under Claudio Ranieri and later Craig Shakespeare.

This season, he is yet to feature for Leicester City in a league game with the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Marc Albrighton, Demarai Gray ahead of him in the pecking order.


His only appearance was against Sheffield United in a Carabao Cup clash last August where he scored in a 4-1 win and has also featured four times for the U-23s.

According to reports in Turkish online publication, bursahakimiyet.com.tr, Bursaspor manager Paul Le Guen has contacted his Leicester City counterpart Claude Puel to enquire about Musa’s situation at the club.

Le Guen according to the report has also spoken on the phone with Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr to seek more information on the former VVV Venlo of Holland player.

Also his international teammates William Troost-Ekong and Mikel Agu, who both play for Bursaspor, are expected to help convince Musa who is also a reported target by his former club CSKA Moscow, Stoke City and Hull City to join the Green and White.

The 24-year-old is expected to leave Leicester City before the end of the winter transfer window to boost his chances of making Nigeria’s squad to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

      Yes! I don’t want to miss Musa in the 2018 world cup, having faith in what he can offer.
      Playing in a new club, I believe will help rekindle that character with which we almost defeated the Argentines in the last world cup. GO !!!Musa, we’re solidly behind you.

    Any one who can help Musa to move away from Leicester should be regarded as a patriot.
    From day one, Musa always give his all to the Nation. The Leicester Couch has problem with that. Even in Russia the other day, his assist helps put a ‘nail’ in Argentina’s coffin.

    A bursaspor move would be a good opportunity for Ahmed Musa to revive his currently threatened career, especially as the world cup draw closer. For me, he should be in the squad to Russia because there is a quality he brings into the team, his speed and ability to cut into the 18 yard box can disorganise opponents defense line. On his good day, Ahmed Musa can be a torn in the flesh of any team in the world. Super eagles need him, Nigeria need him…Go Musa Go!!!
