Former Premier League player signs for ex-club to help boost image
Leicester City fans may remember Ahmed Musa, whilst others may be able to recall who he was from his time at The Foxes, however there might be a few that are scratching their heads about who he might actually be.
A Nigerian international and captain of the Super Eagles, Musa is still only 28-years-old and can play as a forward or as a winger. During his time in the Premier League, he only managed to score a total of two goals (five across all competitions) which is why the club decided to cut their losses on their reported £16 million signing from CSKA Moscow just a couple of seasons later.
The African lost his way a little bit since in regards to his football career, as he has had spells with CSKA Moscow again and Al-Nassar in the UAE as well.
A return to the Premier League looked to be on in the winter transfer window that passed in January, as West Bromwich Albion were thought to be closing in on his signature before finances became an issue.

He had been without a club for a while and is now back at home in Nigeria with the club where his football started.
According to the BBC, Ahmed Musa has joined Kano Pillars on a short-term deal with the hope he can keep his fitness and get a dream move back to European football via this method.
The club have also revealed that they hope his arrival will help them build their image, whilst the 28-year-old wants to develop the image of the Nigerian football league via his use of social media in a more positive fashion.
“Anything that improves the image of Nigerian football is something that I strive to embark on and Kano Pillars holds a special place in my heart,” the former Leicester City player told BBC Sport Africa as he considered the deal.
“It’s the team that helped me become the professional footballer I am today, so this is more than just football but a very strong bond.”
If Musa performs well for Kano Pillars, then he may not have to be there too long as it is thought that he has numerous potential suitors all around Europe.
It has been claimed that a return to either England’s or Russia’s top-tiers could be in the offing soon, whilst Turkish reports claim clubs such as Besiktas and Fenerbahce are both interested in possibly acquiring the Nigeria captain.
Hopefully, things work out for Musa.
