Ahmed Musa set to rejoin Kano Pillars, 10 years after – Report

Ahmed Musa

Nigeria’s Super Eagles captain and former Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) topscorer Ahmed Musa is reportedly making plans to rejoin Kano Pillars on a short-term deal.

Musa, 28, has been without a club since October 2020, after severing ties with Saudi Arabia club Al Nassr and was unable to tie up a deal in Europe during the last transfer window in January.

ACLSports reports the former Leicester City forward is expected to complete a short term deal with the Pyramids city club.

He is highly regarded in Kano after his exploits in the 2009/2010 Nigerian league season when he scored eighteen goals to finish as the league’s top scorer, leading Pillars to a second place finish.

Musa left the club for Dutch side VVV Venlo in the summer of 2010 from where he commenced his sojourn in Europe which has taken him to clubs like CSKA Moscow in Russia and Leicester City in England.

Kano Pillars are currently second on the NPFL table midway through the season only behind leaders Kwara United on goals difference and the Ibrahim Musa-Jugunu coached side will hope the much experienced star can lead them to a league winning season.
